Watch out for Daylight Savings Time this Sunday!!!

There are serious potential problems with the upcoming switch to Daylight Savings Time this Sunday. While MSFT is working on a fix, so far it is not perfect. Check out these entries.

The network company we work with, CSI (www.csiteks.com), has discovered the following:

1.) If a client [like Outlook, entourage, palm or windows mobile] gets the update first, there will be a 1 hour disparity. 

2.) If the workstation gets the update before the mobile device, it can hose and duplicate appointments!!!

3.) If the user changes his/her clock forward on Tuesday [instead of the system administrator changing the time on the server or applying the patches across all machines] that user will be locked out of Active Directory until someone logs on as a local administrator.  This particular scenario we can almost count on as most of our users are local administrators of their machines!

Hopefully MSFT will give us a fix before this Sunday.
