 Advisory Information

RELEASE DATE: 2006-02-24


Australian Timezone rules require changes for the upcoming Commonwealth Games in Melbourne. As a result, daylight savings time will be extended to 02-April-06 in some Australian states.

The US daylight savings time rule changes that were passed into law on 08-Aug-2005 will take effect in 2007.

The ERPs identified in the Resolution section of this Engineering Advisory provide the HP Tru64 UNIX fixes necessary to address both the Australian and US time zone changes.

HP software for the Java™ Platform is also affected by the Australian daylight savings time changes. A fix will be available in early March 2006 to address the Australian time changes. HP Tru46 UNIX customers should refer to the Java Technology Software (http://h18012.www1.hp.com/java/alpha/) download page for the availability of the Software Development Kit (SDK) and the Run Time Environment (RTE) v 1.4.2-5 for HP Tru64 UNIX.

Target Audience: Customers subject to upcoming timezone changes


The following versions are affected:

  • 5.1B-3
  • 5.1B-2/PK4
  • 5.1A PK6
  • 4.0G PK4
  • 4.0F PK8

HP is releasing the following ERP kits publicly for use by any customer. The ERP kits use dupatch to install and will not install over any Customer Specific Patches (CSPs) that have file intersections with the ERP. Contact your service provider for assistance if the installation of an ERP is blocked by any of your installed CSPs.

The fixes contained in the ERP kits are scheduled to be available in the following mainstream patch kit:
