New Zealand Daylight Saving Time (DST) Changes for 2007

Document ID: 98600

Updated: Aug 30, 2007

   Print

Introduction

On 30 April 2007, the Honorable Rick Barker, Minister of Internal Affairs, announced a three week extension to the period of daylight saving. Daylight saving time (DST) now runs from the last Sunday in September until the first Sunday in April.

Summary of Changes to Daylight Saving Time
  Prior to 2007 Year 2007 and After
Start First Sunday in October 2am on 30 September 2007 (Last Sunday in September)
End Third Sunday in March 3am on 6 April 2008 (First Sunday in April)

For more information regarding Daylight Savings Time in New Zealand, visit Department of Internal Affairs website:

http://www.dia.govt.nz/diawebsite.nsf/wpg_URL/Resource-material-Information-We-Provide-About-Daylight-Saving?OpenDocument#D 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 Savings Time.

Affected devices that are not changed could display the time exactly 1 hour off from the actual time during DST periods in spring and fall. In 2007, DST starts one week earlier and ends one week later than in past years. This change takes effect for the first time in September 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 leavingcisco.com purposes, etc.) that has been configured to use New Zealand DST rules would be impacted during the time period when the new New Zealand DST rules go into effect, but the old New Zealand DST rules are still applied.

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 September 30, 2007.

Refer to these categories for more information about your product:

In order to view each enhancement and the version in which it is integrated, click the appropriate Cisco Tracking ID or use the Bug Tool (registered customers only) . You must register with Cisco.com in order to view this information. For a full list of product Field Notices, refer to the Product Field Notice Summary page.

Note: The tables in this section reference Field Notices that have not been released. Once a notice is released, the appropriate reference will be updated with a link to that document.

Network Time Protocol Implications

Although it might appear that the use of Network Time Protocol (NTP) will avert any issues related to these time changes, NTP and daylight saving time are mutually exclusive and one does not help or hinder the other. The Network Time Protocol is a utility used to synchronize clocks on different devices. Typically, NTP takes a reference clock from a source that is based on the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), which does not change regardless of DST.

For example, the Eastern Standard Time (EST) in the United States is five hours behind the UTC time when daylight saving time is not active. EST is four hours behind when daylight saving time is active. DST configuration is very specific to the time zone in which the device is deployed, and the NTP UTC is used as a reference when DST is calculated on each individual device.

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.

clock summer-time zone recurring [{week} {day} {month} {hh:mm}
                             	  {week | day | month | hh:mm} [offset]] 

In order to comply with the 2007 DST time change, use this command on any device that runs the Cisco PIX or ASA OS:

clock summer-time EDT recurring 2 Sun Mar 2:00 1 Sun Nov 2:00 

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:

Note:  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]

Application and Content Networking System (ACNS)

CiscoWorks

Management applications, such as CiscoWorks and Cisco Secure ACS, use the time provided by the operating system. Therefore, in order to resolve the DST issue, you must install the operating system patch that contains the fix for your operating system (Windows, Solaris, etc.).

If the platform includes an operating system that is maintained by Cisco, such as Unified CallManager or the ACS appliance, Cisco will provide a patch. See the affected products list in the Network Management section in order to determine when a patch will be available for your product.

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 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

In order to comply with the 2007 DST time change, use this command:

clock summer-time Eastern 2 Sun Mar 2:00 1 Sun Nov 2:00

Note: The time zone “Eastern” is a user-defined value and can be determined with this command: show running | clock.

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.

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 2nd Sunday in March. DST should be disabled on these devices so the device does not attempt to set ahead its clock on the 1st Sunday in April.

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:

Daylight saving to be extended

Hon Rick Barker

Minister of Internal Affairs

30 April 2007

New Zealanders will have three weeks more daylight saving from 30 September this year following the decision by the Labour-led Government to extend the period to 27 weeks, Internal Affairs Minister Rick Barker announced today.

Clocks will go forward an hour a week earlier than usual - on the last Sunday in September- and back an hour on the first Sunday in April, instead of the third Sunday in March. This is the first change in daylight saving since 1990.

“The decision means people will have an extra hour of daylight in the evenings from late September to early April to enjoy the outdoors. This builds upon the extra half an hour already built into New Zealand’s time throughout the year,” Rick Barker said.
