Daylight Savings changes in Western Australia – prepare now!


Daylight Savings time changes can have a significant impact on business performance if not dealt with proactively. Effects can range from the incorrect time display on the clock, to calendaring problems, to changes in business critical services that are time dependent. This year, Western Australians rejected by referendum a proposal to extend their trial of daylight savings. As a result there will be no daylight savings in WA this year or for the foreseeable future. The time change was scheduled for 25 October, but will no longer occur.

We encourage customers to review their preparedness for these changes. See the Australia 2009 Daylight Saving Planning Guide.

    It’s daylight saving, not daylight savings!

    All very good except there is no patch for Windows 2008 Server x64  (There is for the R2 version).

    Microsoft say another 1-2 weeks!

    Simon…. just run the Vista x64 update on Server x64 – works fine. Windows7/Server 2008 R2 use the same update so it was reasonable to assume Vista and Server 2008 do the same. It is, though, stupid of Microsoft not to explicitly list Server 2008.
