Difference in SAP Time Zone - Time in SAP System

Hi,

 

I am facing a problem in the SAP system time zone settings.

 

In my ECC and BI systems the System Time Zone and the User Time Zone is maintained as INDIA. When I check the system status using System -> Status -> Usage Data, I find the below mentioned details.

 

Previous logon       10/26/2009  11:20:41

Logon                                         11:43:25

System time                                12:48:13

Time zone               INDIA           23:18:13

 

The problem is the time shown after the Time Zone INDIA - "23:18:13", where the time should be "12:48:13". The mentioned time in the field should be the same as the system time. At the OS level I find the date and time of the system to be correct. We are running on

 

  1. date

Mon Oct 26 12:52:21 CDT 2009

 

I have tried re-setting the timezones to CET and restarting the machine, but still the TimeZone Time does not change.

Because of this I face issues in functional transactions where the after the 24th hour in a day, the date increments and users wrongly choose the entries in the From date field in many transactions.

 

Please share a solution for the same.

 

Thank you

Regards,

 

Vineeth

    Hi,

     

    Check SAP  Note 741734 - Incorrect times due to the time zone settings

    Vineeth,

     

    When you use System > Status in SAP, it lists the system time zone - which in your case would be 12:48 and be CDT.  This appears to be correct and it matches your OS time.  The time mentioned underneath "system time" is the time zone assigned to your SAP user ID in SU01.  This should not be relevant to any data, but if you wish to change it you should be able to via SU01.

     

    You said "The problem is the time shown after the Time Zone INDIA - "23:18:13", where the time should be "12:48:13" "

     

    Most likely "India time" is specified in your SU01 profile.  This is normal to have a local time for this; and its probably not related to your issue.  The system time is what is important.

     

    Hope this helps,

    Ian
