A.8 Daylight Savings Time Commands

Use the commands in this section to manage daylight savings time for NSS volumes.

nss /DaylightSavingsTimeOffset=value

Issuing this command causes UTC time to be recalculated from local time. Specify the offset applied in time calculations when daylight savings time is in effect.

Default: +1 (one hour)

Range: 0 to 23

nss /StartOfDaylightSavingsTimeOffset=value

Local date and time when the switch on to daylight savings time should occur. Formats include a simple date and time enclosed in quotes, or rule enclosed in quotes and parenthesis. For example:

“April 1 2008 2:0:0 am”
“(April Sunday > 1 2:0:0 am)”
“(April Sunday First 2:0:0 am)”

Only rules cause rescheduling for the next year. You must set both the start and end dates before either is scheduled.

[Value=none]
nss /EndOfDaylightSavingsTimeOffset=value

Local date and time when the switch off of daylight savings time should occur. Formats include a simple date and time enclosed in quotes, or rules enclosed in quotes and parenthesis. For example:

“October 31 2008 2:0:0 am”
“(October Sunday <= 31  2:0:0 am)”
“(October Sunday Last 2:0:0 am)”

Only rules cause rescheduling for the next year. You must set both the start and end dates before either is scheduled.
