    Does changing  OS date affect Oracle instance? Do I need to stop instance?

      HI all,

      I'm having a senior moment here. The SA is wanting to change the OS date/time....how will this affect the Oracle instances running on the box.? Should I bring the instances down, let him change the date (date command I'm guessing, this is a RH box)...and then bring it back up..
      Or, do I need to take it down at all....just leave it up and let them do the date command ?
