Dbvisit Standby is installed on Linux x86_64 and everything is working fine but when using Scheduling from Dbvserver (GUI) it is showing a different Local Server Time. Our time zone is America-Lima (GMT-5). GUI interface is showing five hours of difference, but on the servers the time is OK.
Linux Server time: 13:30
Dbserver GUI shows Local Server Time: 18:30
Check whether the TZ variable has been set on your system. At least, in the shell that started Dbvserver. If you wish to try yourself, then just run these commands:
/etc/init.d/dbvserverd stop export TZ=Pacific-Auckland /etc/init.d/dbvserverd start
Then go to the About page in the web based GUI and compare the time-date displayed. If this corrects the issue then make sure you set the TZ variable in the shell that starts the Dbvserver process: add the TZ variable to any of the start-up Bash control files
/etc/profile to make the change permanent.
If the database is running on RAC, then this action needs to be done on all nodes.
There is a file called
dbvserver.conf and this contains
This config variable
date_time_zone is now obsolete. The correct date and time is controlled by the setting of the shell variable TZ.
