We are finding that Microsoft’s patches and procedures for fixing the early daylight savings time problem are difficult to implement and do not work all the time. Are others having the same experience? I have found and heard little about other users having problems.
Microsoft recommends that you complete the following four steps in as short a timeframe as possible.
There’s a lot of work to do, and since most of our clients download updates automatically, we had to patch our servers as soon as possible after the DST patch installed a couple of weeks ago.
Second, each user must run the time zone update tool — not an easy task to support when you have hundreds of users, at least 50 of whom are heavy calendar users. Never mind that it doesn’t successfully update all appointments. Perhaps this leads to Microsoft’s final, confidence-bursting recommendations.
Of course, everything appears normal on a Mac, as if this never happened! I would rather have a simpler system with fewer capabilities than an overly complex one that requires this much work in the event of a change of this sort.
