    Unanswered: daylight savings time

    With the change in daylight savings time this year I was wondering if any patches needed to be applied to sql server. We are running sql server 2000.

    Thanks.

    the date and time in sql server is determined by the machine clock which would mean it would be a windows patch.

    they moved the date, did'nt they? Good question.

    Nice but unnecessary. The mothership will provide the patches. Unless you are one of those guys that do not patch your servers…

    Some funny crap might happen this year because of this.

    Here is the patch for XP SP2 and Server 2003.
