time zone

Due to following error some of logical name was created

"SYS$TIMEZONE_DAYLIGHT_SAVING" = "0"
"SYS$TIMEZONE_NAME" = "GMT"
"SYS$TIMEZONE_RULE" = "GMT0

%JBC-W-SYSERROR, SYS$MANAGER:JBC$DST_COMMAND.COM daylight savings time process f
ailed system service error at PC 00011EA0

-JBC-W-NOTIMZONRUL, SYS$TIMEZONE_RULE logical not defined, Daylight Savings Time

Re: time zone

The timezonerule looks strange to me, try to redefine the time stuff using SYS$MANAGER:UTC$TIME_SETUP.COM.

See also HELP/MESS NOTIMZONRUL

Re: time zone

If we execute uts$time_setup.com. the logicals names are created. but we reboot the server. The logicals names are not created and gives error in operator log.

Re: time zone

Does a
@sys$manager:utc$time_setup "" show
display any errors?

Re: time zone

If we execute that command it shows following logicas was not created.

Re: time zone

Did you use DTSS to synchronize times?

We have disabled DTSS and use NTP, so during boot VMS calls the procedure TDF$UTC_STARTUP.COM which seem to initialize the logicals using the image $SYS$SYSTEM:TDF$SET_TIMEZONE.EXE.

regards Kalle

Re: time zone

no we are not using DTSS

Re: time zone

What version of VMS and what patches are installed? Although this doesn't look familiar, there have been updates to time zone management recently.

Re: time zone

Probably OpenVMS V7.3-1? Probably not current on the OpenVMS ECO kits? Try loading the TDF kit, VMS731_TDF-V0400 or later.

Wonder if HP has fixed the errors in the error messages, too -- ah, never mind... Bad TZ pedant. Bad pedant. :-)

Re: time zone

I have exactly the same problem under IA64 8.3-1H1.

Decnet-V is in use, but hasn't been configured yet, so may be why the message is being displayed, but any reboots clear the logicals and brings the message back.

Any ideas?

Re: time zone

Rob,

please read the comments/code at the beginning of SYS$STARTUP:VMS$BASEENVIRON-050_VMS.COM

If you did not configure DECnet-Plus and did not also define NET$DISABLE_DTSS (in SYLOGICALS.COM), then TDF$UTC_STARTUP.COM may not be invoked during boot.

Make sure the timezone information in the last line of SYS$STARTUP:xxx$UTC_STARTUP.COM is correct for your desired timezone (xxx=TDF or DTSS). If not, run @sys$manager:utc$time_setup

Re: time zone

Thanks Volker - setting the DISABLE_DTSS logical did the trick.

Re: time zone

Would setting the NET$DISABLE_DTSS logical and rerunning SYS$STARTUP:TDF$UTC_STARTUP.COM on a live system fix the problem, or do I need a reboot before the next time change?

Re: time zone

Neil,

if you look at the code in TDF$UTC_STARTUP.COM, you'll recognize, that it will immediately exit, if the SYS$TIMEZONE_RULE logical is already defined.

So the answer to your question is: NO

To fix the time zone without a reboot, just run @SYS$STARTUP:UTC$TIME_SETUP

Volker.
