Oracle Linux: End of DST Time not Changing on Systems with Fiji Time Zone (Doc ID 2629372.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 21, 2021

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On systems configured with Fiji time zone, the operating system end time for Daylight Saving is set for Sunday 19th, but the DST is already ended on January 12th. The system time should have been changed and moved back one hour behind, but it is not.

This causes that applications have issues with time synchronization. Therefore, the time has to be changed manually.


The summer time period in Fiji has been shortened by two weeks, starting one week later and ending one week sooner than previously scheduled.

Daylight saving time in Fiji started 02:00 on November 10th, 2019, and ended 03:00 on January 12th, 2020.

It was previously scheduled to start on November, 3rd 2019, and end 19 January, 2020.
