Environment

Novell GroupWise 7
Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 6

Situation

Email sent and recieved from the GroupWise Client are off by one hour.
Workstation Time and Server Time are correct.
Time stamp on events in the POA event window are off by one hour to the server time.
User started to notice the problem shortly after Jan 1 2008 (1-2 days).

Resolution

This has been fixed with NetWare 6.5 support pack7 (tested w/ DVD iso)

Work around for support pack 6 and below:

When the server was installed the time zone HST10HDT was put in the autoexec.ncf instead of just HST10. Towards the beginning of the Autoexec.ncf change
SET TIME ZONE = HST10HDT
to
SET TIME ZONE = HST10

and restart the server.
