Creation date seen via NFS is wrong (1 hour)

I have an NFS server :
DIGITAL TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS Alpha Version V4.2 - ECO 1
on a AlphaServer 2100 4/200 running OpenVMS V6.2-1H3

I have 2 NFS clients :
DIGITAL TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS Alpha Version V5.0A
On a AlphaStation 200 4/233 running OpenVMS V7.2-1

On the 2 stations I have automatic daylight saving change and the following logicals.
"SYS$LOCALTIME" = "SYS$SYSROOT:[SYS$ZONEINFO.SYSTEM]MET."
"SYS$TIMEZONE_DAYLIGHT_SAVING" = "1"
"SYS$TIMEZONE_DIFFERENTIAL" = "7200"
"SYS$TIMEZONE_NAME" = "MET_DST"
"SYS$TIMEZONE_RULE" = "MET-1MET_DST-2,M3.5.0/2,M10.5.0/3"

If I do a dir of a certain NFS file, station 1 says 11:15, station 2 says 12:15. The config of TCPIP says that timezones can not be configured .

What is wrong ?

Look at logicals *TZ* you may find they are wrong. If so try command
UCX GENERATE TIME
which I think redoes the TZ.

Ian,

Nope. No TZ logical.
Did the generate. No difference.

Double check those timezone logicals on both machines - make sure they are in fact the same. The off by 1 hour problem is often becuase the SYS$TIMEZONE_DIFFERENTIAL logical is off by 1 hour (3600).

And, please excuse me for stating the obvious, but, sometimes these things get missed - I assume you have the VMS time ($ SET TIME) set correctly on both?

Lastly, have you checked the FAQ (http://h71000.www7.hp.com/wizard/openvms_faq.html)?

Brad,

Double checked it. Identical. I checked time and utc time on both nodes. Identical.

Re: Creation date seen via NFS is wrong (1 hour)

How do you do the automatic daylight savings change? Is DTSS involved?

Yes DTSS is used.
