Unanswered question This question has not been answered yet.
I have tried to use the Blackout Event feature to disable alerts for 7 databases on one server for 2 hours to no avail. The Blackout Event is listed in the Blackout Event tab as Active and has the correct date and time. On the surface all appears fine. However, in the Database Tab the Databases show the column Blackout Active as NO. I also get the alerts for all these databases not being available until they are once again available. I should say that I have been able to get this to work for one database. However if I schedule multiple databases as multiple events it does not work either. Is anyone else having these issues and if so how are you able to correct it.

Re: DB2 Data Studio 3.2 Blackout Events2013-02-27T17:07:50ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.The Blackout events are set using the local browser time. Is your data server in a different time zone than your local machine where you run the browser? Just a guess.
For example, suppose your local machine/browser runs in US Central time and your managed DB is in US eastern time. If you want a blackout on the database from 2-3am Eastern, you would need to schedule it in your browser as 1-2am.
Also - If you (or someone else) then looked at the same blackout screen from Eastern time zone browser, that blackout event would appear as scheduled for 2-3am. (or in pacific time browser, it would look like 11pm the prior day)
Basically the displayed times are relative to your locale. Internally they are stored UTC but just rendered relative to your local time zone. Currently the time zone itself is not shown on the screen.
