SPA400 Daylight Saving Time Rule Syntax ?

Unanswered Question
Jan 23rd, 2010

Is there a difference in the sytnax required to enter a daylight saving time rule into a SPA400 & a SPA9000?

The rule  start=10/1/sunday/02;end=4/1/sunday/02;save=+1   works fine on the SPA9000

This starts DST on the first Sunday of October at 2am and ends it on the first Sunday of April at 2am.
The time shifts forward 1 hour during DST.

If I use this rule in the SPA400 it doesn't store the rule properly.
After rebooting, the rule displays as  start=10/1/sunday/02  the end part is missing.

The voicemail message timestamps are one hour out.

NTP is working O.K.

The SPA400 firmware version is

Thanks, Nigel

I have this problem too.

Dear Sir;

It looks like your syntax is wrong, as you need to indicate the day of the week in number (1-7) not in name.

e.g. start=4/1/7,end=10/-1/7,save=1

Thanks Alberto.

I had 2 problems with the syntax.

First was the "7" for Sunday, not the word.

The second was that the SPA400 uses commas for the delimiters in the daylight savings rule.

The SPA9000 Voice System Administration Guide shows semi-colons as the delimiters.

This rule gives me what I need.


Regards, Nigel
