The Question is:
Our Alpha systems automatically turned the clocks back by 1 hour at 1 AM on
Sunday 21 Oct.
We wish to disable this feature; How do we do it?. This coincided with the
following message in the operator.log:
%DTSS-I-NOMSGS, Message Number 02958403
We are running OpenVMS V7.1 on a DEC Alpha 1000A
The Answer is :
You could disable DTSS entirely, per the directions in the OpenVMS
FAQ. Or alternatively, you could disable the change:
ncl> set dtss automatic TDF change = false
Or you could select (or newly establish) a timezone rule that does not
change over to daylight time. For example, the timezone rule:
is for a timezone that is five hours behind GMT (US East Coast), and
that does not change to daylight savings time.
