Changes to DST in North America...

SP13, Oracle 9i
Does anyone know what HP's approach is going to be to the changes with DST which are taking place in North America?

Formerly DST would have started on April 1, 2007, but this is being changed to March 11, 2007. As well, the end dates are changing from October 28, 2007 to the new date of November 4, 2007.

Thanks for your assistance,
Ryan

Re: Changes to DST in North America...

Hello,

This is what I have read about this, patch DSK_00106 will be released to support new US DST settings for earlier Service Packs, using the "tzupdater" tool.

This patch will be released before February 2007. It will provide the new DST settings on Service Packs previous to SP22.

Service Pack 22 will contain a definitive solution which makes it possible to dynamically set timezones:
