IT Pros in WA! Some good news for your day today! We have completed work on the Exchange 2003 CDO patch that will address the current WADST issues. You can call Microsoft Professional Support on 132058 and request the hotfix under KB article number 929895.
At present, applying this patch primarily affects customers that send meeting requests outside their organisation to other organisations. This must be applied to all Exchange servers in your organisation and in other business partner’s Exchange Servers to work correctly. It will address Outlook Web Access issues and meeting requests sent outside the organisation. It will also be necessary to apply this patch for the next two years duration of WA’s DST trial.
There is also a hotfix for Outlook however, updates for Microsoft Outlook 2003 and 2007 are only required if specialised client-side applications which use the CDO interface to access time zone information are installed on the client PC. Installation of the Outlook updates should only be performed if problems are observed subsequent to installation of the server update. To obtain the Outlook hotfixes, call Microsoft Professional Support on 132058.
More information will shortly be posted to the official Australian DST website at: http://www.microsoft.com/australia/technet/timezone/default.aspx
