Issue:
Facing problem with spectrumgtw probe. The clock on probe is one hour ahead .Checked the OS time and everything is OK. This difference in time is queueing all alarms on SDM and Spectrum.
Environment:
UIM  8.51
spectrumgtw 8.65 HF3
Resolution:
If the UIM Server has access to the internet, then you can run these steps: 

1) Download the Java Time Zone Updater Tool from: 
https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html 

2) Extract the tzupdater-2.2.0.zip file and copy the tzupdater.jar file to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\jre\jre8u102\bin\ directory. 

3) In a DOS-Prompt window as Administrator, navigate to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\jre\jre8u102\bin\ directory and run the following
syntax to manually patch the installation with the tzdata2018e (timezone data): 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\jre\jre8u102\bin>java -jar tzupdater.jar -l https://data.iana.org/time-zones/releases/tzdata2018e.tar.gz 

Using https://data.iana.org/time-zones/releases/tzdata2018e.tar.gz as source for tzdata bundle. 

4) Check whether the tzdata was applied successfully: 
C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\jre\jre8u102\bin>java -jar tzupdater.jar -V 

tzupdater version 2.2.0-b01 
JRE tzdata version: tzdata2018e 
tzupdater tool would update with tzdata version: tzdata2018f 

5) Restart the Nimsoft service on Primary hub 

Note: If similar issue seen for mainenance mode probe same steps can be followed
