Re: Time Change on the VAX

Starla,

see SYS$EXAMPLES:daylight_savings.com - standard OpenVMS example file. You can invoke it and provide answers to the questions and have it submit a batch job, which will change the time at the appropriate date and time.

See the following description from the System Manager's Manual:

Re: Time Change on the VAX

These are old servers running VMS 5.5-2 or VMS 7.1 The automated daylight.com is only on Alphas VMS 7.3 However, the information provided was very helpful. I will attempt to write a timechange.com file and submit it to run in a que at the appropriate time. Thanks to everyone.

Re: Time Change on the VAX

Starla,

I have some code you can have to work with -- I originally developed it for a mixed VAX and ALPHA site. I think it should be adaptable to still run on V5.5-2. I don't know if I tweaked it beyond that or not.

If you're interested I can email you the code -- there are a couple of utility subprocedures it uses for doing date calculations.

Re: Time Change on the VAX

not sure if this will help, this is the .com file i used on an old vax
$ set proc/priv=all
$ run sys$system:sysman
set environment/CLUSTER
set profile/priv=all
do set time=3-apr-2004:01:00:0.0
exit


I submitted it to a batch que to run at 2am
