When the Log Manager creates log event files, it generates a time stamp based on the time zone for each log event. When the Log Manager creates log folders, it labels folders according to a time stamp. When you export or purge log event files, the Log Manager uses this property to calculate which log event files to purge or export. Set the time zone to the location of the machine that stores the log event files.
Verify that you do not lose log event files when you configure the time zone for the Log Manager. If the application service that sends log events to the Log Manager is in a different time zone than the master gateway node, you may lose log event files you did not intend to delete. Configure the same time zone for each gateway node.
When you change the time zone, you must restart Informatica Services on the node that you changed.
