Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 

UseNotesTimezone


Short Description: Determines whether the DST settings from the OS are used on the server

Description:

Determines whether the DST settings from the OS are used on the server, per Dafault the server is using these settings in R5.

Values:

1 - Enables unlinking from the OS setting

0 - Disables unlinking (thus enables linking) to the OS

If you set UseNotesTimeZone=1, you must also add the TimeZone, DST, and DSTlaw settings as required by your time zone to your notes.ini.

Disclaimer: UseNotesTimeZone, despite being a new variable in R5, is not documented because there is no commitment to supporting it in future versions of Domino. Any mention of this setting here is for informational purposes only and should not be construed as a commitment to support it.

UseNotesTimeZone=1disables Domino's use of the operating system's time zone settings. Setting UseNotesTimeZone=1causes your Domino server to revert to pre-R5 time zone behavior. Setting it to 0 causes Domino to use the operating system's time zone settings. When you set UseNotesTimeZone=1, you must also add the TimeZone, DST, and DSTlaw settings as required by your time zone.

Note that you can only use UseNotesTimeZone on platforms where Domino is capable of using the operating system's time zone settings. This includes all members of the Windows family. On Solaris, OS/2, and other platforms, UseNotesTimeZone is ignored.
