Applying PSU 2.0.3.0.6 on top of 2.0.3.0.5 changing incorrect timezone for non root users (Doc ID 1916944.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 22, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software - Version 2.0.3.0.5 to 2.0.3.0.6
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

Applying April 2014 PSU 2.0.3.0.6 on top of 2.0.3.0.5 is modifying the file permissions on the file /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Los_Angeles and setting it to -rw------- from -rw-r--r--.

As a result the users on the OS are getting UTC as timezone instead of the previously configured PDT.

The timezone change is not noticed for root user. It is only happening for non root users.
