Products: NetWare 6, NetWare 6.0 Support Pack 1 (NW6SP1.EXE)

Here's a tip from the Technical Support Team about the propensity of NetWare 6 servers to get the time wrong after the Daylight Savings Time change.

This tip comes from the popular TID-10070122. Check there for updates and details on this issue.

The Symptom:
Time Source server is NetWare 6.
Time advances 1 hour on every reboot.
Time is synchronized, but 1 hour ahead on SECONDARY time servers.

The Fix:
In the AUTOEXEC.NCF, move the "SET TIME ZONE = <time string>" below the two set statements for START and END of Daylight Savings Time.

A fix will be included in the next Support Pack version of SERVER.EXE (NW6SP2).
