EM12c Metric Evaluation Error – Supplied date is in the future

Last week we had to set the clocks  backward 1 hour for Daylight Saving Time. After the  DST I start to get metric collection errors from some host targets. This was a big surprise because I was sure that we had no time problems. After I checked the hosts and I saw there are no problems but some agents are false reporting errors on those targets. It is also a good idea to create a rule to notify you for metric evaluation errors.

Metric Evaluation Error :

Host=host.bank

Update Details:
Row(1): Supplied date is in the future : now = Wed Oct 30 10:39:01 EET 2013 supplied value = Wed Oct 30 11:38:07 EET 2013

FIX :

Clearing and restarting agents on these hosts will fix the problem and it will disappear.

export EMHOME=/u01/agent12c/agent_inst/bin
$EMHOME/emctl stop agent 
$EMHOME/emctl clearstate agent 
$EMHOME/emctl start agent 
$EMHOME/emctl upload agent
