How to set timezone environment variable to EST

Hello Experts
I'm having problem when I try to run my Enterprise Manager. Listner start normaly but then I tries to start the database I got the following message.
oracle@linux-f4y3:~> /apps/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/bin/emctl start dbconsole
Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Database Control Release
Copyright (c) 1996, 2005 Oracle Corporation. All rights reserved.
Timezone mismatch: The agentTZRegion value (EST) in
does not match the current environment TZ setting(EST).
The dbconsole cannot run with this mismatch.
If EST is the correct timezone, set your timezone environment variable to EST and repeat the 'emctl start dbconsole' operation.
If EST is not the correct timezone, make sure that the timezone in your environment is correct, and then run the following command in your local Oracle Home: 'emctl resetTZ agent'
The output of this command will include detailed instructions to follow, to correct the mismatch.
To me looks like I need to fix the timezone on my machine but I don't know how. Can please somebody shows me the steps how to achieve this task?
Thanks a lot in advance.

I believe this issue is occurring because timezone info between the OS and oracle is out of synch - possibly because timezone patches have been applied to the OS or oracle, but not both. It is always good practice to apply such patches to both OS and Oracle.

  • How to set the environment variable of csh

    Hello expert,
           I set the environment varibale of csh after I upgade the oracle to I added "setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH ${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:/oracle/client/10x_64/instantclient" to profile ".dbenv_GVSHP101.csh" . But when I run env in my os , it showed LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/sap/IDS/SYS/exe/run:/usr/sap/IDS/SYS/exe/uc/linuxx86_64:/oracle/IDS/102_64/lib:/oracle/client/10x_64/instantclient:/oracle/client/10x_64/instantclient
    . There are two :/oracle/client/10x_64/instantclient in my environment varibale. I do not why. How can I set the environment? Thanks a lot.

    I don't know which O/S you are using and how your .dbenv-files looks.
    However, as quick work around you could just add the following lines to the end of .dbenv_<hostname>.csh:
    unsetenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /usr/sap/IDS/SYS/exe/run:/usr/sap/IDS/SYS/exe/uc/linuxx86_64:/oracle/IDS/102_64/lib:/oracle/client/10x_64/instantclient

    How to set the DISPLAY environment variable in AIX?Usual format is:
    export DISPLAY=
    Where the host is the hostname or IP address of the client platform running a X-Server. If the X-Server is running locally, then this entry can be omitted.
    The display-number is the display number of the X-Server to use. A single X-Server can have multiple displays. E.g. Unix server running a X-Server can have 10 users connected via X-Terminals and will this have 10 displays.
    Judging from X-Windows questions asked on OTN, it seems to be a tad complex to grasp for some - especially those from a MS Windows background as X-Windows is very different and also reverses the client-server concept, requiring the X-Server component to be running on the client platform (where the server platform runs the program that is the X-client).
    So it is a lot easier to rather use something like VNC instead - supported on most Unix platforms, Linux, Windows and Apple's OS/X.
    Simply run the VNC server on the server platform to create a virtual container for running the X-server display. Connect from a client using a VNC client.
    As it uses the RFB (Remote Frame Buffer) protocol, it is a lot faster than running the slower and larger X11 protocol required for X-Windows connectivity over TCP/IP.

  • Why do we actuallya need the setting of environment variables?

    Hello guys,
    I read that, in order to connect to the database via SQL*Plus, we need to have the environment variables set. So, SQL*Plus is a command tool, which doesnt know over which path to connect to db, if the environment variables are not set?
    How about the needs of setting environment variables at point of view of MS-DOS? I know that over MS-DOS we can check if the environment variables are already set or not. Or we can actively set the environment variables.
    When should we actually set the environment variables? Before we run the GUI or after? I read, that if we set it before we run the GUI, then the setting will be taken over when it comes to that step by running GUI. I am curious, since this would be interesting to know, if we use other version than XE.

    Oracle's flexibility ... many different versions working the same on many different versions of many different operating systems ... means that a single consistent installation and configuration methodology must work everywhere so as not to have the limitations of other competing products that work on only a single operating system or require that one learn a different syntax and methods for different versions.
    Be grateful Oracle is as it is. Your competence in one version and operating system translates into competence in others.

  • How to get system Environment variable?

    How to get system Environment variable without using jni?
    just like "JAVA_HOME" or "PATH"...
    Any reply is help to me!! :-)

    Thx for your reply...
    I get it!!!
    Read environment variables from an application
    Start the JVM with the "-D" switch to pass properties to the application and read them with the System.getProperty() method. SET myvar=Hello world
    SET myothervar=nothing
    java -Dmyvar="%myvar%" -Dmyothervar="%myothervar%" myClass
    then in myClass String myvar = System.getProperty("myvar");
    String myothervar = System.getProperty("myothervar");
    This is useful when using a JAVA program as a CGI.
    (DOS bat file acting as a CGI) java -DREQUEST_METHOD="%REQUEST_METHOD%"
    If you don't know in advance, the name of the variable to be passed to the JVM, then there is no 100% Java way to retrieve them.
    NOTE: JDK1.5 provides a way to achieve this, see this HowTo.
    One approach (not the easiest one), is to use a JNI call to fetch the variables, see this HowTo.
    A more low-tech way, is to launch the appropriate call to the operating system and capture the output. The following snippet puts all environment variables in a Properties class and display the value the TEMP variable. import*;
    import java.util.*;
    public class ReadEnv {
    public static Properties getEnvVars() throws Throwable {
    Process p = null;
    Properties envVars = new Properties();
    Runtime r = Runtime.getRuntime();
    String OS = System.getProperty("").toLowerCase();
    // System.out.println(OS);
    if (OS.indexOf("windows 9") > -1) {
    p = r.exec( " /c set" );
    else if ( (OS.indexOf("nt") > -1)
    || (OS.indexOf("windows 2000") > -1 )
    || (OS.indexOf("windows xp") > -1) ) {
    // thanks to JuanFran for the xp fix!
    p = r.exec( "cmd.exe /c set" );
    else {
    // our last hope, we assume Unix (thanks to H. Ware for the fix)
    p = r.exec( "env" );
    BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader
    ( new InputStreamReader( p.getInputStream() ) );
    String line;
    while( (line = br.readLine()) != null ) {
    int idx = line.indexOf( '=' );
    String key = line.substring( 0, idx );
    String value = line.substring( idx+1 );
    envVars.setProperty( key, value );
    // System.out.println( key + " = " + value );
    return envVars;
    public static void main(String args[]) {
    try {

    Thanks to W.Rijnders for the W2K fix.
    An update from Van Ly :
    I found that, on Windows 2003 server, the property value for "" is actually "windows 2003." So either that has to be added to the bunch of tests or just relax the comparison strings a bit: else if ( (OS.indexOf("nt") > -1)
    || (OS.indexOf("windows 2000") > -1 )
    || (OS.indexOf("windows 2003") > -1 ) // works but is quite specific to 2003
    || (OS.indexOf("windows xp") > -1) ) {
    else if ( (OS.indexOf("nt") > -1)
    || (OS.indexOf("windows 20") > -1 ) // probably is better since no other OS would return "windows" anyway
    || (OS.indexOf("windows xp") > -1) ) {
    I started with "windows 200" but thought "what the hell" and made it "windows 20" to lengthen its longivity. You could push it further and use "windows 2," I suppose. The only thing to watch out for is to not overlap with "windows 9."
    On Windows, pre-JDK 1.2 JVM has trouble reading the Output stream directly from the SET command, it never returns. Here 2 ways to bypass this behaviour.
    First, instead of calling directly the SET command, we use a BAT file, after the SET command we print a known string. Then, in Java, when we read this known string, we exit from loop. [env.bat]
    @echo **end
    if (OS.indexOf("windows") > -1) {
    p = r.exec( "env.bat" );
    while( (line = br.readLine()) != null ) {
    if (line.indexOf("**end")>-1) break;
    int idx = line.indexOf( '=' );
    String key = line.substring( 0, idx );
    String value = line.substring( idx+1 );
    hash.put( key, value );
    System.out.println( key + " = " + value );
    The other solution is to send the result of the SET command to file and then read the file from Java. ...
    if (OS.indexOf("windows 9") > -1) {
    p = r.exec( " /c set > envvar.txt" );
    else if ( (OS.indexOf("nt") > -1)
    || (OS.indexOf("windows 2000") > -1
    || (OS.indexOf("windows xp") > -1) ) {
    // thanks to JuanFran for the xp fix!
    p = r.exec( "cmd.exe /c set > envvar.txt" );
    // then read back the file
    Properties p = new Properties();
    p.load(new FileInputStream("envvar.txt"));
    Thanks to JP Daviau
    // UNIX
    public Properties getEnvironment() throws {
    Properties env = new Properties();
    return env;
    Properties env = getEnvironment();
    String myEnvVar = env.get("MYENV_VAR");
    To read only one variable : // NT version , adaptation for other OS is left as an exercise...
    Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("cmd.exe /c echo %MYVAR%");
    BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader
    ( new InputStreamReader( p.getInputStream() ) );
    String myvar = br.readLine();
    Java's System properties contains some useful informations about the environment, for example, the TEMP and PATH environment variables (on Windows). public class ShowSome {
    public static void main(String args[]){
    System.out.println("TEMP : " + System.getProperty(""));
    System.out.println("PATH : " + System.getProperty("java.library.path"));
    System.out.println("CLASSPATH : " + System.getProperty("java.class.path"));
    System.out.println("SYSTEM DIR : " +
    System.getProperty("user.home")); // ex. c:\windows on Win9x system
    System.out.println("CURRENT DIR: " + System.getProperty("user.dir"));
    Here some tips from H. Ware about the PATH on different OS.
    PATH is not quite the same as library path. In unixes, they are completely different---the libraries typically have their own directories. System.out.println("the current value of PATH is: {" +
    System.out.println("LIBPATH: {" +
    gives the current value of PATH is:
    on my linux workstation. (java added all those execpt /lib and /usr/lib). But these two lines aren't the same on window either:
    This system is windows nt the current value of PATH is:

  • Setting the environment variable

    I just installed the rpm for the 1.4 SDK on my RedHat 7.1 box. Does anyone know how I can set the environment variable so it will recognize Java from the command line? Thanks in advance.

    You need to set a couple of environment variables in your "profile" script. Which one, exactly, depends on the shell you use. It's probably .profile on your home directory.
    JAVA_HOME=/usr/java1.4 (or wherever it really is)

    Srinivas Jaltaru

    Within your shell script you can use what is known as a "here document" which is basically a way of wrapping a call to Oracle. The following call to Oracle loops and writes rows to files with numerically increasing file names. Two unix shell variables are used, one in a select statement and one in a spool command :
    export ORACLE_SID=DEV05
    while [ ${FILENO} -le 1008400 ]
    DUMMY=`sqlplus -s user20/user20 <<SQLSTOP
    set lines 73
    set pages 0
    set head off
    set termout off
    set echo off
    set feedback off
    select rpad(searchx, 8)
    from blastx@PRODUCTION
    where searchx = ${FILENO} ### here's a shell variable
    spool /export/home/user20/sql/psiblast/BACKUP2_D/${FILENAME} ### here's a shell variable
    spool off
    FILENO=`expr ${FILENO} + 1`
    exit 0
