Extended Daylight savings time

rschmid
Is anyone doing anything for this. Does XP SP2 patch this issue? What about legacy operating systems such as DOS and WIN9X? What steps have you taken?

    I downloaded a patch from MS for the 2003 servers, but I am also going to run a NTP program on my DC as my boss is the first to point out when the machiens are off by 1 + minutes.

    XP SP2 does not patch this. There is a separate patch available either from MS web site or by using the Update utility.

    Legacy OS's before W2K are on their own. There is no patch available since support for these OS has been discontinued.

    DOS is not a time aware OS unless you used commands to retrieve the time from the BIOS clock. All DOS systems will need to be manually adjusted for any time change. If the system BIOS has a DST feature, you will want to disable it.

    For Windows 9X, NT and Me, there is no patch forthcoming. However, if you have good registry editing skills, you should be able to use the information from this MS article for Windows 2000 to edit the time zone settings in the registry.

    Once you set it up on a system, you can export the key and import it onto other systems.

    Well done, I knew I asked the right forum. The only real problem I have is the Win 9X machines that run manufacturing equipment. I do appreciate your inputs thanks again.
