Daylight Savings time on 5.0.2 - SCO

Am running 5.0.2 and 6 months ago started using xntpd to keep my time correct on 1 server. I was then using this server as a time server for all my other unix and windows systems.

    Default Daylight Savings time on 5.0.2

    Am running 5.0.2 and 6 months ago started using xntpd to keep my time
    correct on 1 server. I was then using this server as a time server for all
    my other unix and windows systems.
    However, the timezone I am in, (Central Australian Time) offers no automatic
    DST in SCO's Time Manager. DST commenced 2 weeks ago. As such my system time
    is out by 1 hour if I continue to update in this way.

    Cant find anyway around this in the SCO resources or anywhere else.
    Does anyone know of a way around this so that I can still update my time
    from an external clock during normal time and DST?

    Thanks,

    John Clarke

    NTP daemons keep UNIX time, not local time. This is seconds since The
    Epoch, defined as midnight January 1st, 1970 GMT. Your kernel keeps
    that time too, NOT local time.

    Local time is displayed by commands like /bin/ls by applying the offset
    in your TZ environment,

    Read the timezone(F) man page. Note that the DST rules for the United
    States are used by default. Try altering the sample shown in that man
    page for the Cook Islands.

    JP,

    Thanks for the directions.

    Found the 'tz' command which allowed me to properly configure start and end
    times/dates for DST in my timezone.
