Changing Server (Controller/Worker/Gallery) time zones from UTC to PST

Asteroid

Hi,

 

Can anybody validate/confirm my thoughts...has anybody done this before???

 

 

Currently, our Alteryx Server (Controller/Worker/Gallery) are set up on UTC time (which is 8 hours ahead of our current Pacific Standard Time – PST).

 

I'm planning on changing the server to PST:

 

1) I know how to change the time zones in the respective servers, but I'm not positive on the proper order or steps to complete.

For example, # 1, I assume I should stop the services on all 3 machines (does order matter? - controller - 1st, Worker - 2nd, Gallery - 3rd?).

2) And then, make the time zone changes on each machine.

3) Then restart services on each machine (does order matter)?

4) Lastly, my understanding is that if a workflow ran daily at 1:30 PM UTC (5:30 AM PST) it would still run at 1:30 PM but at 1:30 PM PST after the change, is that right?

 

Thanks in advance...

John

Hi @JohnBell

 

For the restarting sequence, it is better to  

Stop 1st. Worker -> 2nd gallery -> 3rd Controller

Start 1st.Controller -> 2nd gallery-> 3rd Worker

 

For Q4, answer should be 'Yes', if you have set the schedule job in gallery.

 

Best Regards,

Samuel
