Seeking Latest Timezone Rules, DST Details?

» close window

The Question is:

We configured a timezone rule using net$configure advanced and using the menu
 options chose the timezone for Egypt.  The sys$timezone_rule logical is then
 defined as "EET-2EEST-3,M4.4.5/00,M9.4.5/00".  The date is fine, but the time
 is set to midnight...
for both the going forward and going back?!  Is this correct?

The Answer is :

  Please check the OpenVMS FAQ for details on finding and loading the
  most current timezone rules, and see the OpenVMS C utilities manual,
  the FAQ, and the cited websites for details on time and timezones
  and DST and additional details on rules and ZIC and related.
