Oracle database access error: timezone region not found

By using the Demo Box with an Oracle database, the following error can occur:

ORA-00604: error occurred at recursive SQL level 1 ORA-01882: timezone region not found

This requires setting the same time zone as on the system on which the Oracle database is running.

You can set a new time within the Demo Box as follows:

  • vagrant ssh - Connect into the box
  • date - See the actual system date and time
  • sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
