Hi,

I have installed Websphere ND package V6.1.0.17 on one of our Dev environment.

Before installing the application on WAS I have seen the Eastern timezone set in the logs of Dmgr, nodeagent and AppServer.

While installing the application on WAS I have specified the Timezone = America/NewYork.

After the installation of application, the logs of Application Server and in the application page its showing the timezone as "GMT" but the Dmgr logs and nodeagent logs shows the EST timezone.

I have added the Time Zone (TZ) variable in the environment variable list thru admin console and checked the server.xml file which also shows the TimeZone= america/NewYork. But still I am seeing the timezone as GMT in the logs and in the application.

So, can anyone please advice me how can i fix this issue.

Thanks in Advance

Hi ,

I got it fixed by changing the -Duser.timezone=America/New_York in the WAS console.

i.e Admin console -->Appservers --> Servername --> Java and Process Management -->
Process Definition --> Java Virtual Machine  --> Generic JVM arguments

and added the line  -Duser.timezone=America/New_York

I got some help for troubleshooting this issue from the IBM support site which I listed below.

I hope this might help to anyone if they will face the same kind of issue.

Thanks,
