There is no DSTLAW line in notes.ini for this server. I know that Domino
is now supposed to follow the OS time but thought there could still be
some confusion at Daylight Saving changes if it was up.

In researching this I found an Info Center article that mentioned the
Restart_Time_Action=, Last_Domino_Time=, and Restart_Time_Interval=, all
three of which also don't exist in notes.ini. However, in searching for
them I found TimeZone=, DST=, and ZONE_SET= in there. These got me to
thinking. (I know, very dangerous at this time of the night) You can't
set these things via the Admin Client anymore so I just now took a
chance, shutdown the server, deleted the lines and restarted it. A test
message seems to show the correct time now. Somewhere an upgrade along
the line from version 5 of many moons ago something got missed.



On 3/10/2009 8:57 PM, Chris Whisonant arranged the binary bits such that:
First of all, you shouldn't need to shut down Domino for DST changes on the
i any longer.
Secondly, what do you have for the DSTLAW notes.ini parameter for this
Domino server? It should be: DSTLAW=3,2,1,11,1,1

Well it looks like Domino is goofed up again on DST. I setup a job to
shut down Domino (8.0.1) on the IBM i (V5R4) before 2 AM and restart it
after 3:05 AM Sunday. The i changed time just fine but now all the email
going through Domino shows a send time one hour in the future. Domino
has been shut down and restarted twice since then for backups. The
config has "This server is using the OS's time zone and daylight saving
time rules." in Additional Info that can't be changed.

How do I kick this pig back into reality?

Never think of the future. It comes too soon regardless.
