Here we are on March 1, 2007. Our GroupWise development team has completed work on the DST GWCheck tool. This Daylight Savings Time option in GWCheck is much anticipated.

The download is not yet ready. I am told late tomorrow or sometime during the weekend for the release (Monday on the outside) as we work to complete testing. We have identified 17,000 cases that need to tested prior to release. The team has been working around the clock on this task. Please stay tuned.

Coming March 1st to the download website…

The coming legislative changes in Daylight Saving Time can impact some appointments in Novell GroupWise systems by changing their scheduled appointment time by one hour. Novell is building an automated tool to accompany the manual correction measures already provided by the Novell GroupWise team. The tool will be a GWCheck option and will be available for download at http://download.novell.com by March 1, 2007. Administrators will need to run the tool on all post offices in order to automatically adjust the majority of affected appointment items.

It’s important to understand that the tool alone will not resolve all known issues. We will provide specific details next week when we post the tool. If you prefer to get a jump on the process, please visit https://secure-support.novell.com/KanisaPlatform/Publishing/741/3802376_f.SAL_Public.html to reference the Daylight Saving Time manual process documentation. Thank you for your attention to this issue.
