Original topic: DM web ui启动指定时间和实际回溯的时间不符合

The DM web task was scheduled to start at 14:00, but it was found that the binlog was traced back to 8 hours earlier… Was the time zone conversion not done properly, or was it not configured…?

Set the time zone.

It seems to be a time zone issue. Could you provide a flowchart of the specific operations? Maybe we can optimize the task startup process in the future.

Is it resolved?

Manually specify the time zone.
By the way, check if the upstream and downstream time zones are consistent.
