If you do not want daylight time - just change the TZ setting in /etc/TIMEZONE:
say you have TZ=MST7MDT change it to TZ=MST7

But I think vbe is right - your tztab setting may be wrong. This file determines the day of the year when daylight time turns on/off.

Can this be of some interest?

I just had another thought. Maybe the HP UX box was set up in the US then moved somewhere else. The US just shifted to standard time Sunday November 2.

What time zone are you in? The real name - not PDQ or BEF Sometimes those are not what gets used in /lib/tztab.

Actually I'm in Jakarta (it is GMT+7).
So, I have to change the tztab setting and edit the /etc/TIMEZONE ?
But what tztab setting I have to change ?
note : The HPUX version is HPUX 11i
