Sun statement on Y2K38:
Y2K38 reference to the general problem: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_2038_problem
Readiness for Former US/Canada/Western Australia DST Start/End Dates and 2007 End Date
Prior to the enactment of legislation that took effect this year, Daylight Savings Time (DST) in the U.S. and Canada would have begun on the first Sunday in April (April 1, 2007) and ended on the last Sunday in October (October 28, 2007). Under the new model, DST began on March 11, 2007 and will end on November 4, 2007. Measures designed to help mitigate DST impact for Sun products in advance of the recent (March 11) changeover also cover upcoming dates. In short, if Sun products were appropriately patched, upgraded, or otherwise prepared per Sun's specific recommendations for the new DST start date, no additional steps or actions may be required.
The majority of Canadian provinces have announced they will change the dates for DST to align with the U.S. Only the Province of Saskatchewan, which does not observe DST, and Nunavut Territory are not changing.
The Bahamas have announced they will change the dates for DST to align with the U.S.
Western Australia has introduced daylight saving for a trial 3-year period commencing December 3, 2006.
How do I know if my systems could be affected?
The change in DST applies to the specific territory making the announced DST change. The change may also have an impact on operations, customers or vendors based in other territories which interact or integrate with systems and applications in the territories that are making DST changes. If you are in this position but are unsure whether you need to implement DST mitigation, it is recommended you contact the appropriate customer, vendor or operation in the impacted territory for advice.
