  • Timestamps in Mirth are off by one hour

    We are running Mirth on an Ubuntu installation and its system time differs from the timestamp that shows up in the dashboard for when messages are being processed. the messages always timestammped one hour behind the system time. The server is set to EDT (eastern daylight time). Are there any known issues with Mirth having difficulty keeping up with daylight savings time?

    I had the same problem recently.

    Java have their own timezones. You have to update timezone in your JRE (Java runtime).

    Try do this:

    1. First, be sure that Ubuntu has configured timezone properly.

    2. Stop Mirth Server.

    2. Download tzupdater.jar from Sun to configure the timezone in Java.
    Put this file in your bin JRE folder

    3. Do:
    java -jar tzupdater.jar -u
    java -jar tzupdater.jar -f

    (use sudo command before if you need root access)

    4. Start Mirth Server again.

    good luck!

      It appears that this will be resolved in Hardy with the tzdata-java package as well.

        I have a server running Ubuntu (Hardy Heron) and Mirth. Dates rendered by Javascript in our channels aren't reflecting daylight savings time.
        But the server system time is in EDT.

        So, I did the following:

        1. sudo apt-get install tzdata-java
        2. sudo java -jar tzupdater.jar -u
        sudo java -jar tzupdater.jar -f
        3. rebooted

        But no luck! My dates are still EST, not EDT.

        Any advice? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

          sorry i can't help, but the ubuntu forums are usually a pretty good resource.. i would ask there

          i'm just curious, how are you running mirth on linux? isn't it only deployable as a windows service? with the exe and everything..?

            I run on Linux (Fedora) and have the same problem. I am running a relatively new JRE (1.6.0). Anyone know how to fix this?
