Recently timezone change has been done on our computers and my host has America/New_york. When I try to bring up the oracle EM console I am getting the following error message after running the reset agent command:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>emctl resetTZ agent

The agentTZRegion in:
is not in agreement with what the agent thinks it should be.
Fix your environment.
Pick a TZ value that corresponds to time zone settings listed in:

Check the current version of the Oracle time zone definitions
SQL> conn / as sysdba
SQL> SELECT version FROM v$timezone_file;


If this reports a version 4 then there is no action to take for the Oracle time zone definitions, apply or upgrade from 10.1 to without any action on TSLTZ or TSTZ data. Follow the upgrade or patchset apply instructions, you can skip any DST related sections.

Also consider the Oracle script Fix1882.sql that could be easilly found using Google.

Shut down the firewalls and the antiviruses.

have you changed the IP or domain name of the computer.
Check the network settings, the NIC - network card.
How many NICs you have?
Are you pointing the correct one.

previously there used to be two nics and admin has removed one. I uninistalled and reinstalled Oracle 10G applied the patches but still no improvement. Currently there is only one NIC.

Go to listener.ora file and see the IP the listener is listening.
Change it.
Try to ping the machine to see if the IP is existing.

I have cheanged the IP address in the listener.ora file and it did not work. It appeared like a problem with Oracle on Windows2003 R2. Reinstalling the Windows2003 and then Oracle resolved the issue. The timezone issue is also resolved now with without any patches or upgrade to Seems to be one of those unexplainable  problem.
