Venezuela is changing its timezone from GMT -4:00 to GMT -4:30 on December 9th, 2007.


Follow these steps to implement this change:
  1. Use the SET parameter "SET Time Zone = prt4:30" to modify the time zone.
  2. Use the Console command "Time" to view the current time.
  3. Use the SET parameter "SET Time" to advance the time by 30 Min.
    For example: SET Time 2:30 am
Considerations for Directory Services, Timesync, and NTP may influence the process for advancing time by 30 minutes.

Additional Information

If your server does not have any time provider and uses local (BIOS)time, verify that the clock is correct at the BIOS level.
