Now, the U.S. begins Daylight Saving Time at 2:00 a.m. on the second
Sunday in March and reverts to Standard Time at 2:00 a.m. on the first
Sunday in November.  DST is not observed in Hawaii or Arizona, with
the exception of the Navajo Nation, which does observe DST, even in
Arizona.

The PBX daylight savings time adjustment can be programmed to take
place automatically. You can set the date to change to daylight
savings, and to return to standard time.  The following commands are
accepted by this program for this capability.

Using LD 2

FWTM = Set the date and time for the clock to move forward.
BWTM = Set the date and time for the clock to move backward.
SDST = Enable or disable the automatic change.
TDST = Query the change information.

To implement these commands and turn on Daylight Saving Time
Adjustment for the USA, use the following:

.FWTM 3 2 1 2

.BWTM 11 1 1 2

.SDST ON, (OFF)
ON enables the automatic change capability
OFF disables the automatic change capability

.TDST <CR>
The output reflects the input format to indicate the change
information.


If you just want to change the time and be done with it, here are the

Beyond just the DST changes, can the PBX be programmed to set its
clock automatically by querying an NTP/SNTP server over the ELAN or
TLAN?

Thanks.
