We are in Minneapolis and our QTIMZON system value is set to:

Time zone . . . . . . : QN0600CST2 as Josh said everything will work just fine. Our systems all did spring forward the 1 hour this past weekend.

Subject: QTIMZON system value needed to automatically change time (for Daylight Saving Time)

Our System I did not automatically "spring forward" one hour on Sunday
March 9.
Josh Golden from the System i Work Management support team explained
that my System value QTIMZON QN0500UTCS prevented this.
We are in Oklahoma, U.S.A., central time zone.
We currently have QTIMZON set to -05:00 > QN0500UTCS UTC-05:00S
UTC-05:00 Standard Time <-wrong for our time zone


Josh explained that that our System i will "fall backward' one hour
automatically in November though, if QTIZZON were set to:
I do not feel comfortable with the automatic "fall backward".
