Re: Machine time change and login/startup problem

In a database application, you wouldn't be changing your system clock
Most applications make use of sysdate from the DB server to log
transactions / timestamps etc.

However, Oracle [till at least 9i], doesn't behave in the manner you describe.
During D.R. and Y2K Testing, people have reset system clocks without impacting
the database [of course, transactions that use sysdate get screwed
up]. Time-stamp
based recovery, however, cannot be performed across the actual time when
the system clock was reset backwards.
Are you sure that the errors you encounter in 10g are related to re-setting the
system clock ? What happens if you shutdown Oracle [Database AND Listener]
before you reset the system clock and restart Oracle after having changed
the system time ?
