Thank you Petr for the answer. we tried providing that argument in Meta with different combinations like
KETTLE_COMPATIBILITY_DB_IGNORE_TIMEZONE - Source Meta - N,N,Y,Y
KETTLE_COMPATIBILITY_DB_IGNORE_TIMEZONE - Target Meta - N,Y,N,Y
We have even set the system time in spring boot container during startup to Central Time but we have not been able to fix this issue. We are using kettle core, mondarain and made sure we are using the 9.3 -428 version. Even tried to downgrade to 8.3 but this is one of the few issues we have not been able to find a resolution for till now.
