This section contains conceptual information and instructions on how to manage time zones.
This section contains the following topics:
This section describes how to add a new time zone to Calendar Server, so that it is available in the Communications Express user interface. For example, you might want to add a new time zone for America/Miami.
The simplest way to add a new time zone is to copy and edit time-zone entries that are similar to the time zone you want to add in each of the files described in the following steps. For example, if you want to add a time zone for America/Miami, copy and edit the time-zone entries in each file for America/New_York. If your new time zone has Daylight Savings Time (DST), try to find a similar block to copy.
This section describes how to modify an existing time zone. For example, you might want to change the name of a time zone, such as “America/Phoenix” to “US/Arizona”.
Modify the time-zone block for the time zone you want to change in the following file:
If you are changing a time-zone name, change the TZID entry to the new name.
Modify the getDisplayNameofTZID template in the following file:
where: language specifies the directory for the language your site is using. For example: en for English or fr for French.
If you are changing the name, change the existing time-zone name to the new name.
Modify the following XML files for changes to the time zone:
For information about the entries in these files, see 19.2.1 Adding a New Time Zone.
If the change affects the default time zone for user preferences, modify the “icsTimeZone” entry in the following file:
Steps 2, 3, and 4 are required only if you use the Calendar Express user interface.
Stop (if necessary) and then restart Calendar Server for your time zone changes to take effect.
