On August 8, 2005, President George W. Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This Act changed the time change dates in the U.S. Beginning in 2007
AIX development will be releasing APARs to change the current AIX behavior.
A workaround will also be published for AIX 4.3 since it is out of service.
DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME DEFAULT CHANGING IN 2007
The United States official Daylight Saving Time begin and end dates have changed as of the year 2007. The new start date is the second Sunday of March; the new end date is the first Sunday of November.
The APARs are:
APAR_aix_53 = IY75211
APAR_aix_52 = IY75213
APAR_aix_51 = IY75214
Also, at this time, I do not have any information on AIX 4.3 workaround.
Note: bos.rte.date fileset controls the timezone variable.
Thanks to Mark Parmer for putting together this information.
