I installed Oracle 10.2 on Redhat Linux and the database can be queried through sqlplus with no problem.
However, when I start the Enterprise Manage Database Control I get the following Timezone mismatch error.
My TZ environment value is set to US/Eastern, which also equals the agentTZRegion value of US/Eastern.
Can anyone help? Thanks.

Here is the listing from my console:

[oracle@haran emd]$ emctl start dbconsole
TZ set to US/Eastern
Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Database Control Release
Copyright © 1996, 2005 Oracle Corporation. All rights reserved.

Timezone mismatch: The agentTZRegion value (US/Eastern) in
does not match the current environment TZ setting(US/Eastern).
The dbconsole cannot run with this mismatch.

If US/Eastern is the correct timezone, set your timezone environment variable to US/Eastern and repeat the 'emctl start dbconsole' operation.

If US/Eastern 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.

[oracle@haran emd]$ echo $TZ
[oracle@haran emd]$
[oracle@haran emd]$
[oracle@haran emd]$ tail -20 /u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/haran.seagull.org_seagull/sysman/config/emd.properties

# The following three properties are for HTTP timeout
# Timeout value for reading Http primary header, default is 30 seconds.

# Timeout value for reading http secondary headers, default is 30 seconds

# Timeout value for reading http body, default is 60 seconds.
[oracle@haran emd]$

I ran into this on my home cluster. I think, but have not been able to verify, that it has to do with the latest DST patch for the OS and/or Oracle, and the fact that we are between the normal date for going off DST and the date that was implemented most recently by congress. I suspect that there is some sort of mismatch there.

Like Andy sez, apply the DST patch first. Please check the metalink note 413327.1.

Also, try unseting the TZ environment variable and the dbconsole may start:

root$ unset TZ
root$ echo $TZ

Hope this helps. . .
