Time and Time zone at SAP OS

Hi Experts, We have installed the sap systems into HP UX machine I mean OS is HP UX. In SAP the time zone is setted UTC+6 which is required. But into OS level it is showing different that SAP like UTC+8. We are not getting STAD tcode outpur. Now we need to change the OS time to UTC+6. Can we change the time and time zone directly or we need SAP downtime for it. Please help me. Asad

    Hi Asaduzzaman,

    I suggest that change the OS timezone after both DB and AP are shut down.

    Hello Asaduzzaman,

    Restarting the SAP application server is mandatory as per SAP Note 1165982 - Changes to time zone settings at operating system level.

    Thanks.

    Best Regards,

    Anita

    Hello,

    Yes, you need SAP system restart to reflect the timezone changes done at OS level.

    Timezone changes(at SAP and OS) will also affect your ST03n data.
