Problem Description

New New Zealand Daylight Saving Time rules go into effect in September 2007. Consequently, Cisco Conferencing Connection meetings may occur and appear one hour off than their intended scheduled time.

Background

On April 30, 2007, the Minister of Internal Affairs issued a statement regarding a change in Daylight Saving Time policy for New Zealand. The change in policy has modified the start and end dates for Daylight Saving Time (DST). Beginning in 2007 and beyond, Daylight Saving Time in New Zealand will start on the last Sunday of September at 2:00 A.M. local time and end on the first Sunday of April at 3:00 A.M. local time.

Specifically for 2007-2008, Daylight Saving Time will begin at 2:00 A.M. local time on September 30, 2007, and end at 3:00 A.M. local time on April 6, 2008.

For more information, see the statement issued by the Minister of Internal Affairs: Daylight saving to be extended.

The old Daylight Saving Time policy dictated that DST started on the first Sunday in October and ended on the third Sunday in March.

Problem Symptoms

Cisco Conferencing Connection meetings occurring during the below time frames may occur or start one hour off from the original, intended start time during the below time frames in 2007-2008:

-September 30, 2007, to October 6, 2007

-March 15, 2008, to April 6, 2008

Workaround/Solution

To ensure the Cisco Conferencing Connection server is compliant with the new DST policy, the MCS server's Microsoft Operating System will need to be patched. For more information, please refer to the MCS Server Operating System Field Notice for New Zealand Daylight Saving Time.

No update is required specifically for the Cisco Conference Connection software; only the above MCS Server Operating System update is required.
