    AIX O/S updated to support 2007 Daylight Saving Time change - (default)




    The Energy Policy Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-58) was passed by the
    United States Congress on July 29, 2005 and signed into law
    on August 8, 2005. This law changes the time-change dates for
    Daylight Saving Time in the United States.
    Beginning in 2007, DST will begin on the second Sunday in
    March and end on the first Sunday in November.


    IBM has released updates to the AIX 5L operating systems to support
    this change. The updates should be applied prior to March 11, 2007.


    AIX 5L Version 5.3
    IBM recommends installing Technology Level 4 or later.
    The update is also available as a specific fix by installing the
    fix for APAR IY75211
    Filesets: bos.rte.libc.5.3.0.40 and bos.adt.prof.5.3.0.40


    AIX 5L Version 5.2
    IBM recommends installing Technology Level 8 or later. The update
    is also available as a specific fix by installing the fix
    for APAR IY75213
    Filesets: bos.rte.libc.5.2.0.85 and bos.adt.prof.5.2.0.85


    AIX 5L Version 5.1 (Out of support)
    The update is available as a specific fix by installing the
    fix for APAR IY75214
    Filesets: bos.rte.libc.5.1.0.70 and bos.adt.prof.5.1.0.70

    AIX 4.3.3 DST Workaround (Out of support)

    You can manually specify when to start and stop DST by setting the
    TZ environment variable in the /etc/environment file. An example for
    the US Central timezone follows:

    TZ=CST6CDT,M3.2.0,M11.1.0"M3.2.0" means to go on DST starting in
    month 3 (March), week 2, and Day 0 (Sunday).
    "M11.1.0" means 1st Sunday in November.

    NOTE: Reboot the system before March, 2007 so all processes running
    will pick up the new time change.

    Also make sure that you upgrade java as well (db2, etc)...You should
    get to SR5 or higher.

    aixtest /usr/sys/inst.images/RPMS >java -fullversion
    java full version "J2RE 1.4.2 IBM AIX build ca142-20060421 (SR5)"
    aixtest /usr/sys/inst.images/RPMS >lslpp -l Java*

    Web site is not allowing specific download fix for AIX 5.2 or 5.3.
    If I ask to keep technology level the same (AIX 5.2 TL7 or AIX 5.3 TL3)
    it says a TL update is required when trying to download the APAR's?

    Ideas?
