    There is an extreme amount of confusion on the best way to prepare for the new DST changes. I’m very dissappointed with the last minute changes and hacks that MS has put together. I have to justify and support a game plan to my senior staff on how we are going to address this issue and potential risks. How can I do this confidently when information is incomplete, vague and continuly changing over the past few months? Thanks a lot. Hopefully the webcast step-by-step will clear up a lot of this fustration. However, I’m betting that it will not.

    Missed the live webinar, and can’t find it in the recorded section. Is it available to watch?

    I completely agree with Robert’s comments.

    Having to read 12 different documents – some with conflicting information, bad links to unrelated patches (KB for XP links to WindowsXP-KB884020-x86-enu.exe), and missing information (Using the Exchange update tool (Known issues section, tpoic conlicts with conference room assingments is missing steps to update resource mailboxes).

    For as much as I pay for our Microsoft products I expected a more enterprise ready solution – what we are getting seems to have been created by a team of teenage garage hackers.

    I also think that preparing for and addressing the issue earlier would have been a splendid idea.

    No disrespect for those who put together what we did get, it’ll get the job done, but next time let’s do it like professionals…OK?

    I ran the time zone extractions with version 1 tool — creating all my files to ready / prepare for processing the updates in minimum time.  However, version 2 doesn’t seem to run against the version 1 data correctly.  (If I uninstall ver 2, and reinstall ver 1 — Tool version 1 runs against the data correctly).  Is this normal behavior, or do I need to research my issue further (e.g., maybe a different column order in the extracted "mailbox_1.txt" file)?

    Also, I was disappointed to now see with version 2 the KB article recommends the server patches be applied AFTER the Exchange Tool.  This is different than all prior documents I have read.  Can you please confirm this to be correct?  I hate to unpatch, and then repatch the servers if unnecessary.

    Lastly — the version 2 seems to want a "local to server" mailbox with full "send as" rights (unlike requirement with version 1).  Am I reading that correctly?

    Kind regards! –janie

    I also echo Janie’s concerns about the recent version of 930789 tells tpo patch exchange (926666) AFTER running the tool. This goes against the recent webinar and just about all other documentation.

    Any insight would be much appreciated

    Why isn’t anyone mentioning this method:

    • To set the computer not to change the system clock for daylight saving time, click to clear the Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes check box, and then click OK.
