      https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/dst2007/2016/09/19/time-zone-updates-for-turkey/

      Turkey switched from EET/EEST (+02/+03) to permanent +03, effective 2016-09-07. New leap second 2016-12-31 23:59:60 UTC as per IERS Bulletin C 52.

      Result: Europe/Istanbul no longer valid to refer to GMT+2 (aka. EET timezone) in portal.properties for property time.zones.

      Updated in IANA Time Zone Database tzdata2016g: http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz-announce/2016-September/000041.html
      Will be updated in future Java 8 update. JRE/JDK can be updated manually by http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/documentation/tzupdater-readme-136440.html.


      Workaround/Solution Use Europe/Helsinki as option for EET to the property in portal-ext.propeties
