Moving servers and applications to different timezones

Starting with version 6.0.5, you can migrate applications to a server on a different time zone.

About this task

In releases older than version 6.0.5, you cannot move applications to a server that is running in a different time zone.

To migrate applications to a server in a different time zone, you must upgrade to version 6.0.5 or later. When you move a server to an OS with a different time zone, you must specify the time zone where the ELM was originally installed.

If you installed 6.0.5 or later, you can move the server to a different timezone. If you installed an earlier version of ELM and then upgraded to 6.0.5 or later, you can migrate to a different timezone.

If you moved a pre-6.0.5 server to another timezone and upgraded to 6.0.5, then perform the following procedure:
Note:

For best results, upgrade the server first. If you migrate the applications first, add the com.ibm.team.repository.db.timezone=current_timezone and com.ibm.team.datawarehouse.db.timezone=<current_timezone> property to each teamserver.properties file after you copy it to the new server.

Procedure

  1. Open the Jazz_Install_Dir/server/conf/app/teamserver.properties file, where app is an application with a teamserver.properties file.
  2. Change the com.ibm.team.repository.db.timezone=<current_timezone> property to com.ibm.team.repository.db.timezone=<timezone_of_pre6.0.5 server>.
  3. Change the com.ibm.team.datawarehouse.db.timezone=<current_timezone> property to com.ibm.team.repository.db.timezone=<timezone_of_pre6.0.5 server>. If the com.ibm.team.repository.db.timezone and com.ibm.team.datawarehouse.db.timezone properties do not exist, then add them to the teamserver.properties file.
