The times they are a changing…… again DST 2007

This coming Sunday is the day that in the past we would have set our clocks back an hour, but thanks to Congress, the fall back will take place the first Sunday in November.  If you prepared properly prior to the change in March, you should be in pretty good shape, here are a few reminders and resources for more information. 1. For Sametime servers prior to 7.0.2 FP2 make sure you have run the Java Time Zone Utility Update 2  Sametime . 7.5 CF1 is the minimum version required for DST (7.5 CF1, 7.5.1 require a fix, 7.5.1 CF1 is fine) 3. The agents for fixing calendar entries can be found here, no harm in running them a second time to if you want to be safe just run them again. 4. Don’t forget Blackberrys, we found a bunch of new ones distributed after the spring time change that went out with out the patch.  You can install the patch from here.  If you device is running a 4.2 release you may not need it. These are just some of the things I have been checking lately, there is quite a bit more information out there.  Also of note, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand are also going through DST changes of their own now.

    Have you seen any issues with people getting the new KB933360 patch from MS applied and it skewing the times for calendar entries just for next week? But then for the week after the time change things are fine….

    At least they didn’t decide that it was a bad law and should be revoked! Emoticon

    I have not seen any problems other then the blackberry’s without the patch so far. I imagine like last time we will here from a few people during the affected week with minor issues, but should be quiet for the most part.

    As for the law it is a bad one, maybe they should revert back to the old systemEmoticon
