Description:
I tried to insert this value

'2014-09-07 00:00:00'

In a TIMESTAMP column and it returns the next message

Error Code: 1292. Incorrect datetime value: '2014-09-07 00:00:00' for column 'last_update' at row 1

However, if I try to insert the next value

'2014-09-06 00:00:00' // day 06 instead of 07.

it works.

What fails:

'2014-09-07 00:00:00'
'2014-09-07 00:01:01'
'2014-09-07 00:22:22'
'2014-09-07 00:00:22'

What doesn't fail

'2014-09-06 00:00:00'
'2014-09-07 01:00:00' // same day but different hour.
'2014-09-08 00:00:00'

I tried on another machine (Windows Server) with the same result.

How to repeat:
CREATE TABLE `dummy`(`timecol` TIMESTAMP NULL);

insert into dummy(timecol) values('2014-09-07 00:00:00');

Check your local timezone Daylight saving time?

More information:

insert into dummy(timecol) values('2014-09-07 00:00:00');

It fails:

Windows:  Timezone = (UTC -4:00 Santiago) with daily saving.
Mysql: @@global.time_zone SYSTEM (default-time-zone is not set)

Error Code: 1292. Incorrect datetime value: '2014-09-07 00:00:00' for column 'timecol' at row 1

But it works if we set another timezone, including

(UTC -4:00 Atlantic Canada).

1 row(s) affected

It also works if we set the timezone in my.ini

default-time-zone = '-04:00'

1 row(s) affected

It was my mistake.

The current daily saving GMT -4:00 Santiago is 13 May and 12 August.  However and during 2014, the daily saving was the 7 September, ergo 7 September 2014 0 hours was skipped.
