Daylight Savings Problem help please..

Hello there
I am using Novell Netware 6.5 SP8 version
There is also a post office on it
Turkey is no longer using daylight saving time.
So now our time zone has changed to 03: 00

Although I make the time zone settings on NetWare as follows, the incoming mail comes back 1 hour

I could not figure out exactly where I was wrong
How do I change the clock on the post office?

My time zone on NetWare is as follows.

Set daylight savings time offset = 1:00:00
Set Start Of Daylight Savings Time = ( MARCH SUNDAY LAST 2:00:00 AM )
SET End Of Daylight Savings Time = (OCTOBER SUNDAY LAST 2:00:00 AM )
Set time zone = EAT-3EATD
  • Hi and welcome to the forums!

    It's been a long time since I've had to tinker with DLS on NetWare.

    Which version of GroupWise are you running? Could be you need to adjust settings and/or place some updates for the agents too.

    If you have not seen it yet, this TID might help (also note the GroupWise versions and mentioned patch levels): https://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=3802376

    Please let us know about the running GroupWise version and patch level. Curious to know how you go...

    Cheers,
    Willem
  • AFAIK, Turkey is at UTC 3 all the year now, while your box still has a DST configured. As for NetWare itself, i'd assume you'd be correct with

    Set daylight savings time offset = 0:00:00
    Set Start Of Daylight Savings Time =
    SET End Of Daylight Savings Time =
    Set time zone = TRT-3

    Bounce the box, enter BIOS and set time to current local time. Do this after hours as there's no warranty on forum tips. Once the box is back up, enter "time". It should tell you that DST is OFF along with correct info for both UTC and local time.
    Please note that this just handles the NW part, it's NOT about Java or GW itself.

    Hello
    Thank you for your interest
    I am using Groupwise 8.0 on a Netware 6.5 SP8 system

    Turkey has now lifted daylight saving time
    So I would like to disable the daylight saving time on the system and make it permanent as time zone 03: 00, but what if I did not fix it

    Even if it is recovered, it returns to its original state after a while

    TRT-3 does not have a time zone.

    You can change the time zone definitions in GroupWise:
    books.google.se/books
  • Emrekoc,
    > TRT-3 does not have a time zone.


    Then just create one. Note that you may still have issues with stuff
    like webaccess and calendar publisher that relies on Java timezones.

    I did it by NetWare
    Set Time Zone = EAT-3
    Summer time is off

    GroupWise 8.0 left behind
    If I can remove the summer time in it and set the clock to 03: 00, my problem will be solved.

    How do we turn off the GroupWise summer clock?
  • the three letters themselves have no relevance for the calculation, so you can safely name it
    XXX-3
    ABC-3
    EMC-3
    or whatever fits your needs.

    You need to change the timezone in GroupWise also. The link I provided
    above explains how.
