ACR Windows Time Update

· ACR, Avaya

You need to download the latest tzupdater files to the server prior to carrying out the work;

tzdata2016g.tar.gz.sha512 / tzdata2016g.tar.gz /

Stop the cscm service first (Avaya Contact Recorder) from the Services

Extract the TZUpdater and copy the tzupdater.jar file into the Java directory in my case which in my case was located at E:Program Files>Avaya>ContactRecorder>jre>bin)Create a temporary directory

(e.g. under the E:Avaya>ContactRecorder>temp)

Place the tzdata2016g.tar.gz and tzdata2016g.sha512 file in your newly created temp directory.

Open a command prompt with Administrator privileges and navigate to the Java directory in my case E:Program Files>Avaya>ContactRecorder>jre>bin

Enter the following command

java -jar tzupdater.jar -l file:///E:\Progra~1\Avaya\ContactRecorder\temp\tzdata2016g.tar.gz -v

If it’s successfully you should see something along the lines of

Using file:///E:\Progra~1\Avaya\ContactRecorder\temp\tzdata2016g.tar.gz as source for tzdata bundle.

With this the Java time zones will be updated.
