System time change

At the end of the month the clocks change.

What I need to know is that when the clocks change does redhat automatically adjust the clock.. even if the timezone is set to GMT??

Our software relies on time stamps and last time the clock was changed everything went wrong.

If it does change how can we set it not to change??

If RedHat changes the clocks is probably going to depend on if it's syncing to another time source such as an ntp time server. And I think you can choose to enable/disable automatic updating of DST - I'm fairly certain that if your timezone is set to London/GB it will update when the clocks change by default but I can't quite remember.

If you want to make sure that nothing changes though, in future I'd set the BIOS clock and OS to use UTC. That would make much more sense, you'll know exactly where you are with that.
