I had installed a 126.96.36.199 RAC setup few days back with incorrect timezone. It had to be PDT but I installed with UTC.
Starting/stopping clusteware with correct timezone didn't solve the issue.
In 188.8.131.52 Oracle stores timezone information in file $GRID_HOME/crs/install/s_config_(hostname).txt. In my case file looked like this
cd /oragrid/product/11.2/crs/install cat s_crsconfig_prod1.txt <strong>TZ=UTC</strong> NLS_LANG=AMERICAN_AMERICA.AL32UTF8 TNS_ADMIN= ORACLE_BASE=
To resolve the issue we need to change TZ to US/Pacific on all nodes and restart clusterware. So entry would be like
On Restarting clusteware , database and clusteware starts with correct timezone.
In case you wish to have different database timezone only for Oracle database, then it is possible using srvctl command. E.g
srvctl setenv database -d orcl -t TZ=US/Pacific
You can confirm this with getenv command
[[email protected]]~% srvctl getenv database -d orcl orcl: TZ=US/Pacific
This would require database bounce. Also note that in case database is started manually it would not start with correct timezone. To unset the parameter use following command
[[email protected]]~% srvctl unsetenv database -d orcl -t TZ [[email protected]]~% srvctl getenv database -d orcl orcl:
Hope this helps
