Daylight Savings Time

It’s getting close to that time of year again, when the clocks will “spring forward” an hour, and we have to remember what (if anything) needs to be done in CICS when the system clock is adjusted. There are options besides bouncing your CICS regions.

If your system time will be set before midnight and you have AUTORESETTIME set to YES in your CICS SIT table, CICS will automatically set its clock to the system clock at midnight. Note that the default for AUTORESETTIME is NO.

To synchronize the CICS clock to the system clock any other time, you can do so with a CEMT PERFORM RESET command, or EXEC CICS RESETTIME within a program.
