Environment


Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 5
Novell NetWare 6.0 Support Pack 5
Novell NetWare 5.1 Support Pack 7

Situation

Symptoms:
Reinstalling eDirectory through NWCONFIG causes improper Daylight Saving Time settings being rewritten to the AUTOEXEC.NCF.

Resolution

In NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 6 the eDirectory install through NWCONFIG will not continue without manually configuring the Daylight Saving Time settings.

Workaround Steps:
In versions prior to NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 6 the eDirectory install through NWCONFIG will default to the incorrect Daylight Saving Time settings.
To resolve this:
1. Manually change the Daylight Savings Time settings during the NWCONFIG eDirectory install.
2. Re-run DSTSHIFT.NLM after the install of eDirectory completes to reset the proper Daylight Saving Time settings.
