GMS 2018.01

Hi.

Our GMS server is having fun it's talking to a 2018.01 and late 2014 post offices.

All day appointments sent from an iphone using the native iOS App appear in the senders Groupwise / Webmail calendars as two day appointments sometimes for that day and the day before sometimes for that day and the day after. They are correct in the recipients mailboxes and also look fine on the senders iphone

Anyone had a similar experience and solved it?

Hi,

You don't state what version and build of GMS you are using.... kindly provide that vital information 😉

Cheers,

Can't dupe this here on build 280. Backend might be a little more recent (intermediate build). And IOS version is 11.3.1. GMT+2 currently. Can you dupe the issue with let's say an Android device?

Re: GMS 2018.01

see if i can find someone with one to try it 🙂

What's weird is it looks like the appointments go until 9PM or start at 9pm even thought they say all day on the wrong day.... As if the calendar is three hours out.

But when i run the date command on my mobile server that looks fine.
date
Wed 8 Aug 08:31:10 BST 2018

which is correct as i'm in the UK.

Re: GMS 2018.01

While this wouldn't be the first timezone-related issue in Novell's history... did you also check these settings on the PO servers and the phones themselves?
Is there a relation between DST and these wrong offsets, i.e. if you e.g. schedule such an event for a day in November, does it get an offset different of the one you get for an August event?

Hi no relationship that i could see... I was just grasping at straws really with the timezone comment run out of anything else to think it could be. 🙂 Good thinking about the change i'll try one for november and see

Re: GMS 2018.01

Can replicate the same problem on android as well as iOS.

Just did a invite for December... That seems to have worked!! Just getting a colleague to do some more tests to me in November... If that works then will try again for october and could then possibly be BST messing it up?
