When trying to launch a job run, you encounter an error about the time zone not being recognized.


Release : 6.10.x ONLY

Component : Univiewer.Console



The issue was related to the Joda time library which had been upgraded in 6.9.61 used to check time zones. Some codes are too ambiguous as they do not represent summer or winter time.

Code has changed to reflect this limitation from Joda Time Library.



Update to a fix version listed below or a newer version if available.

Fix version(s): 
Component: Univiewer.Console
Dollar Universe 6.10.62 - available


Workaround for Unix/Linux nodes:

Change the TZ variable in the values.xml file to a valid time zone setting, such as "GMT-5".
The node must be restarted for the change to take effect.

Change this: <var id="TZ">localtime</var>
To this: <var id="TZ">GMT-5</var>


Workaround for Windows:

Downgrade UVC to previously working version (6.8.41 or 6.9.x).

Workaround for Windows 2:

Change the timezone of the server hosting Tomcat (if using the Webconsole) or the Workstation ( if using Standalone / Webstart) and align it with the Dollar Universe node.

You can check the timezone in Windows via the command:

tzutil /g
