Issue/Introduction

When the time zone of a Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) console machine is set to one of the southern hemisphere time zones which observe daylight saving time (DST), during non-DST, all reports run to GMT schedules and show in GMT time.

Please see Daylight saving time by country for countries in southern hemisphere which observe DST and their start and end day.
