There is a new timezone data update (2016g) from IANA: https://www.iana.org/time-zones

I couldn't find the updated timezone packages for SLES.

timezone-2016f is the latest, my guess is it will arrive soon.

If this is the update for Turkey moving to its own always-on-DST timezone
for the whole year, the updated timzone package should be out very soon,
if not already. In the meantime, if you want the build to test, contact
support via a Service Request (SR) and they can get you the PTF which
other customers are also using.

Please note that the above files are timezone-2016f not -2016g which is
where this thread started. Note also the above are not the latest
timezone-2016f patches as there are version 0.32.1 packages available.

If you have 64-bit SLES11 SP3 LTSS or SLES11 SP3 for SAP Applications
then you should simply be able to install these via "zypper up timezone"
provided your server is registered and has access to the relevant update
channels. If it is not subscribed then you can download the files from
download.suse.com/patch/finder then use "zypper in /path/to/*.rpm".

No reboot should be required.

Not sure which version or architecture of SLES you have, but here's the
timezone package for SLES 12 SP1 x86_64:

https://download.suse.com/Download?buildid=NaLz5XQBalg~

There are similar builds for other architectures per SUSE's patch
notification e-mail today.

Good luck.

From the prefix set in the web view I believe the OP is using SLES12
for which Long Term Service Pack Support (LTSS) is required to obtain
the updated packages.
