Change in Time Zone Behavior for Israel with Service Pack 4 [Q198046]

PSS ID Number: Q198046
Article last modified on 10-11-1999


The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 4.0

After you install Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4, the "Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes" check box is unavailable on the Time Zone tab in the Date/Time tool in Control Panel if the time zone is set for Israel.

This check box is available for Israel before you install Service Pack 4.

The country of Israel participates in daylight savings time, but the dates on which it starts and ends may vary. Because the start and end dates may vary, automatic adjustment is unavailable. RESOLUTION
To work around this behavior, use any of the following methods:
- Change the time manually on the affected computer(s) by double-clicking Date/Time in Control Panel and then adjusting the hour value on the Date & Time tab.
- Use the Tzedit program from the Windows NT 4.0 Resource Kit. You can use this program to change the affected time zones to start and end daylight savings time on the appropriate date.
- If it is available, use Microsoft Systems Management Server to make the modifications on a network.

This behavior is by design after installation of Service Pack 4.
