----- Tue Sep 8 07:57:18 2015::Mismatch detected between timezone in env (Asia/*****) and in C:\Oracle\Middleware\asinst_1\EMAGENT\EMAGENT/sysman/config/ (America/Los_Angeles). Forcing value to latter.. -----
----- Tue Sep 8 07:57:18 2015::The agentTZRegion value in C:\Oracle\Middleware\asinst_1\EMAGENT\EMAGENT/sysman/config/ is not in agreement with what agent thinks it should be.Please verify your environment to make sure that TZ setting has not changed since the last start of the agent.
If you modified the timezone setting in the environment, please stop the agent and exectute 'emctl resetTZ agent' and also execute the script mgmt_target.set_agent_tzrgn(<agent_name>, <new_tz_rgn>) to get the value propagated to repository -----
--- Shared agent
----- Tue Sep 8 07:57:23 2015::tzOffset for America/Los_Angeles is -420(min), but agent is runnning with tzOffset 180(min)
----- Tue Sep 8 07:57:23 2015::trying again after waiting for 1 sec to account for daylight transition

Timezone used in at C:\Oracle\Middleware\asinst_1\EMAGENT\EMAGENT\sysman\config was
"agentTZRegion=America/Los_Angeles" which was not matching with OS time zone(Asia/*****)
where *****=country name


1) Execute below command from prompt or shell :
export TZ=UTC+3 (Unix)
set TZ=UTC+3 (Windows)

2) $INSTANCE_HOME/EMAGENT/EMAGENT/bin/emctl resetTZ agent

In the output of  above command you will also see the exact parameters that you will have to use with the next command from SQL.

3) Login using SQLPlus as the em repository user(mostly SYSMAN) and run the script:
 SQL> exec mgmt_target.set_agent_tzrgn('agentname','UTC+3')

4) Commit the changes 
SQL> commit


1) C:\Users\Administrator>set TZ=UTC+3

2) C:\Users\Administrator>cd C:\Oracle\Middleware\asinst_1\EMAGENT\EMAGENT\bin
