Novell and Omni have partnered to provide the Riva New Zealand DST module as part of the Riva Version 1.0.6 release.
This module is available free of charge to all New Zealand Novell GroupWise customers who need a solution for the recent changes to the start and stop dates for Daylight Savings Time (DST). Running the New Zealand DST module will automatically create a Query Folder in the Root of each mailbox. The Query folder will display all appointments that fall into the configured date range. The user can then confirm the times are correct for appointments that fall in the new DST time range.
The administrative workstation that will be used to install, configure and execute Riva must have its Regional and Language Options set to (English) New Zealand (Control Panel - Regional and Language Options). The Riva New Zealand DST module will ONLY appear and be available to be configured if the workstation's Regional and Language Options setting is correctly configured to (English) New Zealand.
Following are Riva New Zealand DST module download and support links:
