Within the time management component of IBM® Navigator for i, you can work with the time zone and time adjustment functions. With these functions, you can choose a time zone for your system to use and adjust the system time.
In addition, you can identify the software to use as the time maintenance application that synchronizes your system time with an external time source.
With the time zones function, you can specify a time zone for your system to use. Many time zone descriptions are provided with the system and you can also create your own. Time zone descriptions include whether your system should observe daylight saving time (DST). If your system observes DST, the system automatically updates the system time when DST starts and ends.
The time adjustment function allows you to adjust the system time by manually starting a time adjustment. In addition, you can identify a time maintenance application to use to adjust the system clock to keep it synchronized with an external time source.
