    Clock change: Change to Daylight Savings Time (in the Spring)

    Could we have problems changing to Daylight Savings Time (in the Spring) -- or is just the Fall when the time changes back?


    At 02:00 (a.m.) on Sunday the system clock will automatically jump ahead to 03:00 (a.m.)

    If no jobs are scheduled to run during the time change there should be no issue*, but the job daemon does need to be restarted (util e/15/1) after the time change in order for the jobs to run at the right (new) time. 

    *Note that there definitely is an issue with the change off of Daylight Savings Time in the Fall.
