  2. At the DBS Control prompt, enter di gen to display the General DBS Control fields.
  3. Inspect General field 18 to see if there is a value for TimeZoneString.

    • If there is any other value showing for System TimeZoneString, you need to remove the Time Zone String prior to restoring data. For example:
      18. System TimeZoneString = America Pacific
