Jordan Starts DST Early in 2022

In our Company, we are relying on NTP servers “”, The Jordanian government has decided to start Daylight Saving Time one month earlier from 2022
This announcement has been published for more than 4 months. so the new DST is
( Friday, 25 February 2022, 00:00:00 clocks are turned forward 1 hour to
Friday, 25 February 2022, 01:00:00 local daylight time instead.)

Unfortunately, the pool still shows the OLD one, which means it’s not updated.
How can we solve this?!

Thank you,

Hi @osamaNawafle

NTP always supplies time in the GMT timezone. It’s up to the device to apply the local timezone offset. You will need updated timezone files from the device suppliers or configure it yourself depending on the device. If you say what the devices are someone will probably know how to get / update the timezone information.

Make sure your “tzdata” packages are up-to-date. I think you need at least the 2021b version or later.

Hello @elljay
The time zone is correctly configured.

but what I am asking here is the Next DST.

   Time zone: Asia/Amman (EET, +0200)
 NTP enabled: no

NTP synchronized: yes
RTC in local TZ: no
DST active: no
Last DST change: DST ended at
Fri 2021-10-29 00:59:59 EEST
Fri 2021-10-29 00:00:00 EET
Next DST change: DST begins (the clock jumps one hour forward) at
** Thu 2022-03-31 23:59:59 EET**
** Fri 2022-04-01 01:00:00 EEST**

Here the next DST is read from the pools

Hi @osamaNawafle

Not the timezone, but the timezone file from the vendor.

The pool does not supply the timezone file.

Is the system Red Hat? This is the ->> Red Hat update for Asia/Gaza timezone DST change
