Time Zone settings in OA

First in the new forum - nice.

Does anyone know of the list of variables that can be entered in the Timezone setting.
I've found this place
http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzref.tzc

and as I'm in the UK I use GMT.

But I've been thinking about Daylight Saving Time and seen this..
http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=0&uid=isg3T1000252

So anyone got any idea what to do for the summer? Do I leave it and it will automatically go forward an hour? or do I have to change it?

Hello Adrian

Im not sure, but i would think you have to change it manually. We dont have daylight savings here is SA.

Re: Time Zone settings in OA

Well yours is easy. You can enter ZULU for your timezone.

I was looking for something similar to MST7MDT. Which is Mountain Standard Time / Mountaing Daylight Time. As I was assuming that this would change automatically when DST does.

A couple of other sites that I've looked at are.
http://www.timeanddate.com/library/abbreviations/timezones/
Which does not mention the ETC zone in my previous post - so who is correct?

http://www.merlyn.demon.co.uk/misctime.htm
Which suggests GMT0BST as a variable to enter.

I'm sure I tried this last time I was on a C-Class and it did not accept it. But maybe the OA firmware is better now. So I will try this next time.

Although I have also found references to GMT1BST which could also be tried.

Hello

You almost got me with the ZULU thing, its actually there.

There is only GMT on the OA ver 1.20 - no other GMT settings.

Good Luck
