QRadar: Collecting events from Oracle database results in ORA-1882 error



When trying to collect events from an Oracle database, it resulted in the error ORA-1882


Unable to receive events from Oracle database.

Diagnosing The Problem

Review /var/log/qradar.log

Look for an entry similar to:

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

Run the below command on the Oracle database command line to review the supported time zones in the database:

select distinct tzname from v$timezone_names

Resolving The Problem

Change the time zone of the QRadar server to a time zone supported by the Oracle database or add the missing time zone to the Oracle database.
