    Oracle database time from Linux OS

      We have Oracle database11g in an Vmware Red Hat instance in our environment. I had the following queries with regard to Oracle database time:

      1) I wanted to confirm that the Oracle DB takes the current time from the RHEL OS, is my understanding correct?

      2) The OS time seems to be 5-6 behind the actual time. So the steps to correct should be:-
      a) Change the Red Hat OS time to 5-6 mins ahead?
      b) Should a restart of the Oracle DB be required?
      Is my understanding on correcting the time correct and also regarding the restart of the DB?

      I hope, my question is clear.

      Please revert with the reply to my query.
