Microsoft Australia *finally* releases a DTS patch for Western Australian users
Michael Kleef says:
"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."
I don't blame MS for not getting this update out in time for the first DTS trial here in Western Australia. After all, it's bad enough that the WA Government, in its infinite wisdom, and despite WA residents rejecting Daylight Savings via multiple Referendums, decided to introduce Daylight Savings on a trial basis - what is worse is the government didn't give us more than, what, a couple of weeks to get ready for the change. We were left with a registry hack to create a DTS option for the Perth time zone, and a slew of problems affecting Outlook, OWA, Sharepoint and Exchange. Then there were all the products, like GFI, that started displaying incorrect times thanks to the Government's lack of forethought.
Anyway, enough of that. At least we will be able to get our servers patched a decent period of time before the next DST trial.
