   Print

Contents

Introduction

The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela has announced a new time zone, GMT -4:30, beginning 9 December 2007. The affected time zone for Venezuela is South America Western Standard Time (GMT -4) and is commonly known as Caracas / La Paz (since it is also used by Bolivia). The new time zone that the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela will use is GMT -4:30.

This document details the commands currently available to configure the new time zone. It also lists defects opened to enable the new time zone. The commands listed in this document should be executed at or near the time that the new time zone takes effect.

The products listed in this document were determined to be high priority by Cisco Account Team members in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. The Product Summary Table and the section titled Affected Products are not comprehensive lists of all products that may be affected by the change to the new time zone.

Generally, any product that relies on operating systems not developed by Cisco Systems requires updates from the operating system vendor and will need updates for the Cisco product that uses the vendor's operating system.

Affected Products

10008 Series Routers

No change required; Cisco IOS allows for configurable time zones and offset configurations.

Access Control Server Solution Engine

Access Control Server Solution Engine version 4.10 will support the new time zone.

Agent Desktop

The Cisco Agent Desktop (CAD) application requires updates from Sun and from Microsoft (KB938977 leavingcisco.com) in order to support the new time zone.

Aironet 1000 Series Lightweight Access Point

For Aironet 1000 Series Lightweight Access Point, use the command config time timezone, which is available in release 3.2. However, there is a caveat; the CSCsf99924 defect removed the {enable | disable} parameter used for setting Daylight Saving Time in WLC code 3.2.183.0 and 4.0.199.0 releases. (The Daylight Saving Time parameter will be introduced in a later release of WLC 5.) Depending on the release of WLC software, the command for configuring time zones is:

config time timezone {enable | disable} delta_hours [delta_mins]

(WLC releases prior to 3.2.183.0 and 4.0.199.0) For Venezuela use: config time timezone disable -4 30

config time timezone delta_hours [delta_mins]

(WLC releases 3.2.183.0 and 4.0.199.0 and later.) For Venezuela use: config time timezone -4 30

Note: The {enable|disable} option is removed in the above releases.

For more information about this command and its application, refer to the command reference provided at this link:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/controller/3.2/command/reference/clic1.html

Note:  The Wireless LAN Controller Command Reference covers only the config time timezone {enable | disable} delta_hours [delta_mins] instance of the command.

Aironet 1130 AG and Aironet 1240 AG Series Access Points

For the Aironet 1130AG Series Access Point and the Aironet 1240 AG Series Access Point, use the clock timezone command. The syntax is the same as for IOS – Routers and Catalyst Switches and has been available in all versions of IOS that are used on these Access Points starting with 12.3(2)JA5 for the Aironet 1130AG Series Access Point and starting with 12.3(7) JA for the Aironet 1240 AG Series Access Point.

clock timezone zone hours [minutes]

Where zone is administratively defined and represents the name of the configured time zone, hours represents the difference in hours with respect to GMT-0, and minutes represents the additional offset in minutes from GMT-0. For the new time zone, the values to use are -4 30.

For more information about this command and its application, refer to the command reference provided at this link:

For the Cisco Application Control Engine (ACE) Global Site Selector, this functionality is available from version 2.0 with this command:

clock user-timezone timezone name hour_offset minute_offset

The user-timezone parameter is user-defined. For the new time zone in Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the command syntax would be "clock user-timezone Ven -4 30" and would be executed at the time the new time zone goes into effect.

For more information about this command and its application, refer to the command reference provided at this link:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/app_ntwk_services/ data_center_app_services/gss4400series/v2.0/command/reference/GlblCfg.html#wp1060259

Emergency Responder (CER)

Cisco Emergency Responder will not be update to support the new time. This product is not marketed in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. CER was designed to meet specific requirements for the United States and Canada.

FireWall Service Module (FWSM) (for Catalyst 6500 and Cisco 7600)

The FireWall Service Module takes time zone information from the chassis in which it is installed. Since this device is installed in the Cisco 7600 router that uses IOS and Catalyst 6500 (which uses CatOS), the FWSM does not need to be configured for the new time zone.

IAD2400 Series Routers

The IAD2400 series routers use IOS. Use the clock timezone command in order to set the new time zone parameters.

For more information about this command and its application, refer to the command reference provided at this link:

For more information about this command and its application, refer to the command reference provided at this link:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_3t/fun/command/reference/cfrgt_01.html#wp1099863

Cisco IOS—Routers and Catalyst Switches

Currently, Cisco devices based on the IOS operating system (for all routers) supports the configuration of this new time zone after IOS version 10.0, which was introduced in 1993. The command required to perform this configuration is:

clock timezone zone hours [minutes]

Where zone is administratively defined and represents the name of the configured time zone, hours represents the difference in hours with respect to GMT-0, and minutes represents the additional offset in minutes from GMT-0. For the new time zone, the values to use are -4 30.

For more information about this command and its application, refer to the command reference provided at this link:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_3t/fun/command/reference/cfrgt_01.html#wp1099863

Cisco IOS XR

For the devices based on IOS XR, the support of this functionality is available from version 2.0 through the command:

clock timezone zone {+ | -} hours [minutes]

The syntax for this command is described in IOS – Routers and Catalyst Switches.

For more information about this command and its application, refer to the command reference provided at this link:

IP Communicator

Cisco IP Communicator runs on Windows-based PCs. This application continues to operate even if the PC is not updated per Microsoft (KB938977 leavingcisco.com). The time displayed on the IP Phone will not be correct.

Note: Customers that use the Cisco IP Communicator (CIPC) are required to upgrade to CIPC version 2.0(2).

IP SoftPhone

The Cisco IP SoftPhone application runs on Windows-based PCs and operates without updates, but the displayed time is not incorrect. Cisco recommends that the Windows Operating System be updated per Microsoft (KB938977 leavingcisco.com).

IP Transfer Point (SG Mode)

IP Transfer Point (ITP) leverages the IOS infrastructure for time zone information; see IOS—Routers and Catalyst Switches in the Affected Products section of this document for information on how to configure time zones within the IOS infrastructure.

IP Interoperability and Collaboration Software (IPICS)

Cisco IP Interoperability and Collaboration Software (IPICS) consists of server software and client software. Cisco IPICS requires an update to the operating system and the IPICS software for both the server and the client in order to enable the new time zone.

IPS 4200 Series Sensors

The IPS 4200 Series Sensors can be configured for the new time zone. Use the command time-zone-settings to set UTC – 4.5 . For more information, refer to the document provided at this link:

Cisco License Manager operates from release 1.0. The Microsoft Windows operating system should be updated to support the new time zone.

MDS 9000

Use this command in order to update this product:

clock summer-time <timezone-name> <start-week> <start-day> <start-month> HH:MM <end-week> <end-day> <end-month> HH:MM <minutes-offset>

For example:

switch (config)#clock summer-time NZDT 1 sunday september 01:59 3 sunday march 02:00 1

Note: Check the local values before you use the clock summer-time command in the switches.

In order to set the clocks, use the clock set EXEC command. For example:

switch#clock set 10:00:00 1 January 2009
