Argentina Daylight Saving Time (DST) Changes for 2007

Document ID: 100508

Updated: Jan 28, 2008

   Print

Introduction

On December 21, 2007, the President of Argentina announced that daylight saving time (DST) will be observed beginning on December 30, 2007 and ending on March 16, 2008. No information was made available for future years' daylight saving time periods. This action was taken by Argentina to more efficiently use the limited electrical generation resources while new power generation capabilities are developed.

Summary of Changes to Daylight Saving Time
  Prior to 2007 Year 2007 and After
Start DST not Observed December 30, 2007
End DST not Observed March 16, 2008

For more information, visit this URL:

http://www.lanacion.com.ar/973996-el-congreso-convirtio-en-ley-el-cambio-del-huso-horario leavingcisco.com

The configuration changes provided in this document are required to change the “programmed in” dates of daylight saving time for various time zones. Some devices that run newer software may not require this change if the enhancement request is included in the version of software that runs on the device. In software that includes this enhancement, the OLD summertime values have been changed to the NEW summertime values, and the configuration changes in this document are not required. For detailed information about individual products, see Affected Cisco Platforms.

Configuration or OS changes will need to occur on the devices that implement the old rules, so that the device time can be correct, in logs and other time stamped communications from the device/platform.

Prerequisites

Requirements

There are no specific requirements for this document.

Components Used

This document is not restricted to specific software and hardware versions.

Conventions

Refer to Cisco Technical Tips Conventions for more information on document conventions.

Scope and Impact

The DST change affects all devices that support an automatic time change when they are configured to support daylight saving time. This change impacts Cisco and non-Cisco devices. Customers should contact any vendor that uses time-sensitive messaging or other time-stamped communications in order to determine the impact of the change to beginning and end of daylight saving time.

Affected devices that are not changed could display the time exactly 1 hour off from the actual time during DST periods. In 2007, DST starts on December 30, 2007 and ends on March 16, 2008. This change takes effect for the first time in December of 2007. This change can have a major impact on event correlation activities that are performed as part of normal operations troubleshooting and monitoring.

For security-related devices, where logs are captured, correlated, and stored for future reference, this time change could render them incorrect for situations where they need to be recalled to rebuild a sequence of events. The incorrect timestamps might not be an issue for events that get immediate action. However, in the future, these events would reference incorrect times.

Any device with time-based controls and activities, such as a AAA (Authentication Authorization Accounting) servers, Content Devices (CEs), cron jobs, and video streaming servers can be impacted and should be checked with the appropriate vendor.

Other examples include calls being logged at the wrong times that could affect call detail reporting and billing information or inaccurate campaign dialing times that result in dialing customers outside allotted time periods defined by government agencies, which may be a violation of government regulations.

Consequently, any device with time-based controls and activities, such as authentication servers, synchronization activities, and scheduled events (that is, batch jobs, timed backups, or automated dialing capabilities or scripts for telemarketing purposes, etc.) would be impacted during the time period when the new Argentina DST rules go into effect.

Affected Cisco Platforms

The tables in this section list the Cisco enhancement IDs that were created in order to track the changes in the operating system defaults for various platforms. Versions of software that include these enhancements will correctly change the time when configured to observe daylight saving time. Software versions that do not include these enhancements, but support daylight saving time, will use the previous dates, which are invalid after December 30, 2007.

Refer to these categories for more information about your product:

Adaptive Security Appliances (ASA) and PIX Platforms

You can change the DST configuration parameters for a system that runs the Cisco PIX or ASA OS with a single configuration command. You can run this command at any time and on any device in order to change the current default settings of the given device. Plug-in devices (ASDM, AIP-SSM, CSC-SSM, and other modules) to the ASA will take time from the ASA.

clock summer-time zone date month date year hh:mm month date year hh:mm [offset]

Note: If you do not use the summer-time option, you are not affected by this issue. To verify that you do not use the summer-time option, run this command: show run | include summer-time

If you do not receive output from this command, your device is not affected by this issue. If you receive output and your device is affected by this issue, contact the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) in order to obtain the 6.3(5.123) interim image.

[Return to Top]

ONS 15000 Series Products

Cisco has made changes to the ONS 15600, 15454, 15327, and 15310 products CTC and TL1 software so that the new DST implementation correctly changes with the new Argentina DST times.

Any systems that have not updated the system software will automatically follow the rules set for the previous daylight saving time. In other words, the system automatically modifies the clock and reflects the incorrect time because, on December 30, 2007, the system will not automatically presume that the DST has taken effect.

In order to comply with the 2007 DST time change, these options are available:

  • Obtain a new version of your software.

    Cisco has implemented (or is implementing) the new DST changes into this software:

    • Release 4.1.82

    • Release 5.0.8

    • Release 7.0.2 or higher

    • Release 7.2.2 or higher

    • Release 8.0.x or higher

    Other versions of this software will continue to operate with the previous DST rules.

  • Use CTC in order to manually change the time.

    If customers do not want to upgrade to any of the above software releases. CTC provides you with the ability to enable or disable DST and also to change the time on your nodes. Customers must assume manual control over the system time and force the system clock to reflect the correct time.

    In order to determine which days and times to manually change system time, see the Summary of Changes to Daylight Saving Time table in the Introduction section of this document.

  • Use the TL1 CLI in order to manually change the time.

    You can change the time-of-day parameters for a system that runs the Optical Operating System (ONS) with a single configuration command. Here is the format of the command:

    SET-TOD:[<TID>]::<CTAG>::<YEAR>,<MONTH>,<DAY>,
         <HOUR>,<MINUTE>,<SECOND>,[<DIFF>][:DST=<DST>];
    

    This command changes the time on an optical product that runs ONS. However, the daylight saving start and stop time will not change, and the product uses the defaults coded into the operational code.

If you do not fall into one of these listed categories, you should direct your inquires to your respective Account Manager.

Note: For more information on time zone configurations and how to reset the time, refer to the relevant procedure guide for the Cisco ONS release that you use. For example, if you use Cisco ONS 15454, refer to Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide, Release 7.0.

Storage Switches (SAN-OS) - Storage MDS 9500 Series

By default, the MDS SAN-OS does not adjust for daylight saving time, and the software provides no default values for DST settings. Therefore, any configuration for daylight saving time must include the parameters for the start and end dates.

clock summer-time zone start_week start_day
	 start_month start_time end_week end_day end_month end_time
	 daylight_offset

Since the MDS SAN-OS offers no default values for the setting of summertime, no code changes are required. The DST setting for SAN-OS must be configured through the CLI for these reasons:

  • The Fabric Manager cannot be used to configure multiple switches with this setting as it does not support DST configuration.

  • Cisco Fabric Services does not support daylight saving time configuration as a single fabric can span multiple time zones.

[Return to Top]

Unified CallManager Express (CCME)

CCME uses Cisco IOS. Cisco IOS DST configuration parameters can be changed with a single configuration command. You can run this command at any time and on any device in order to change the current default settings of the device.

clock summer-time zone date month date year hh:mm month date year hh:mm [offset]

For detailed information about the clock summer-time command, refer to the Cisco IOS Network Management Command Reference.

[Return to Top]

VPN 3000 Concentrators (Altiga OS)

The DST Configuration parameters for a system that runs Altiga OS cannot be changed. Currently, in both the 4.1 and 4.7 releases of Altiga OS, you can enable the summertime feature in order to use daylight saving time default settings, as previously set. In order to work around this issue, you must set the time ahead one hour when the new daylight saving time occurs on the December 30, 2007. DST should be disabled on these devices so the device does not attempt to set ahead its clock on the March 16th.

Note: The information provided in this section is a workaround for those who choose not to upgrade to the fixed code once it is available.

You can disable daylight saving time and set the clock forward as shown in this image:

ar_dst_recommendations00.gif

Windows Operating System

Use the Control Panel's Date and Time tool to change the Time Zone setting. Note that for Buenos Aires (Argentina), at GMT-03:00, there is no daylight saving time option.

  1. Choose Settings > Control Panel from the Windows Start menu.

    ar_dst_recommendations01.gif

  2. Double-click Date and Time.

    ar_dst_recommendations02.gif

  3. Change the time zone from (GMT-03:00) Buenos Aires, Georgetown to (GMT-03:00) Brasilia.

    ar_dst_recommendations03.gif

  4. Check the Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes check box in order to add one hour to the system time.

    ar_dst_recommendations04.gif

    Note: The Brasilia (Brazil) option is also GMT-03:00, but (unlike Buenos Aires) this option displays the option to automatically adjust the clock for daylight saving changes.
