BMC Software Product Support and Required Upgrades for Daylight Saving Time

Last Update September 24, 2007

Customers should regularly refer to this web site for the latest updates.

The USA Energy Policy Act of 2005 revised the time-change dates for Daylight Saving Time (DST) in the USA. Beginning in 2007, DST will begin on the second Sunday of March and end the first Sunday of November. Congress retains the right to revert the DST back to the 2005 schedule. Similar revisions are occurring also in Canada, the Bahamas and Bermuda.

This change affects software products which have included DST rules.
