Time does not adjust to Daylight Savings Time (DST) for Egypt


Applies To:

Firmware for the following:

  • GRV-EPIC-PR1
  • GRV-EPIC-PR2
  • GRV-R7-MM1001-10
  • GRV-R7-MM2001-10
  • GRV-R7-I1VAPM-3

Versions Affected:

All versions


Symptoms:

If you have the following options set in Time Settings, your groov EPIC or groov RIO will not correctly adjust for Daylight Savings Time (DST):

  • Enable NTP is on
  • Region is Africa
  • Locality is Cairo 
Daylight savings time was recently reinstated in Egypt, so groov EPIC and groov RIO firmware need to be updated.

Workaround:

Manually set and adjust time:

  1. From the groov Manage Home page, click System > Time.
  2. In the Time Servers section, disable the Enable NTP field.
  3. Click Set NTP.
  4. In the Time section, enter the correct time.
  5. Click Set Time.
When Daylight Savings Time (DST) is in effect, manually adjust the time.

Resolution:

Opto 22 has resolved this issue and will include the fix in an upcoming release.
