In Argentina the users start with DST in the next Oct 18. They want to change the server Time Zone (TZ) environment variable from SAT3 (GMT-3) to SAT2 (GMT-2). They have delayed events and real time events.

The users didnot install any HP_UX so. Patch.
1. If the users change TZ=SAT2, is this an valid operation ?
2. How does Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) support this time zone change ?
3. Do the users need to change timezone.txt file for this?
4. Please explain and clarify the use of this timezone.txt file for delayed and real time events.
