Description: The U.S. Congress extended Daylight Savings Time (DST) in the U.S. by approximately four weeks starting in 2007. It begins three weeks earlier (March/11/2007) and ends one week later (November/04/2007).
Symptoms: Will the changes on the Daylight Saving Time affect NetVault?
The changes on the Daylight Saving Time Will NOT affect NetVault, as long as:
1)- Your OS is correctly set and patched to reflect the changes.
2)- Your NetVault Server is set to be the BAKBONE TIME SERVER by putting a checkmark in the box THIS MACHINE IS THE BAKBONE TIME SERVER in the NetVault Configurator
3)- Please take extra precautions if you have jobs set to run on the day of the changes between 01:00 AM and 02:00 AM, or if your organization interacts with places that will not be following the new DST 2007 (Mexico, for Example).
Please see the following links to get additional information.
NetVault uses the bios time therefore this change has no effect on NetVault as long as your system time was changed.
