Issue/Introduction

Noticed rules that are checked each month, before DST ended last weekend they were showing being stored on - 01/14/19-14:57 

After running the list on that same rule this week it shows this timestamp - 01/14/19-13:57 

Rules are below one for these are stored from 2020-11-02 (after DST end), and from 2020-10-05.

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

ACF2 does not store that local time information in the rule.

ACF2 will store with the hardware clock that they have set to GMT.

When the decomp is done, ACF2 will look at the software clock of the time of the decompile and show the difference between the hardware and software clock on the display.
