This is a supplementary note to aid one in updating Oracle Grid Control components for DST compliance.

This note applies to DST affected zones. If you are monitoring servers outside of these areas, you do not need to execute the routines in this note. However, if Grid Control is located outside of these territories and it is monitoring a server within these zones, you will need to follow this note. Grid Control needs to be aware of the new transition times in theses areas.

Since there are many versions of Oracle Grid Control (and now Cloud Control) in the field, the newer versions should already contain any DST changes since 2007. Some companies have policies that prevent upgrading to latest version due to application compatibility, security issues, certifications, etc. This note holds true to the old products which have retired.
If you cannot determine if your product is DST certified in the region that you are monitoring a server in, please contact support with Grid Control and agent version numbers for them to confirm the issue is resolved or if a patch is needed.
