Is Your Linux Box Ready for the New Daylight Savings Time Change?

Don’t forget that this year the DST changes have changed and you need to make sure your Linux box is ready for it! Not sure if you’re in the clear? Log in to SSH as root and run this command:

zdump -v EST5EDT|grep 2007

If the result displays March and Novembrr dates, Linux is ready. The only other issue you may have is Java… Java has its own timezone file so you need a patch or may need to upgrade the whole package.

(Thanks Elvio for the heads up!)

Aside from that, hope everyone has been well. I’ve been super busy with some extra site projects and catching up on outstanding work, but fear not, many new goodies are coming up for you guys in the P2L community!
