We've begun running windows updates on my company machines so that XP can handle the daylight savings time changes. After installing the initial
updates on the machines, everyone's calendar items started to jump forward an hour. Meetings that were scheuled for 8:30 appeared as 9:30. All day
events (12am-12am) were rescheduled as two day events (1am-1am) and people were freaking out because of missed calls and appointments.
So, we tried to fix it by running the exchange patch immediately after, rather than waiting for the weekend like we had planned. This led to major
corruptions of calendar entries and in some cases, entire profiles needed to be removed from the mailbox stores, then recreated, and all data imported
from a backup .pst.
As for Microsoft's support on the issue, they've been absolutely no help, and just told us that it may be wiser to fix appointments manually rather
than use their tool.
So, to all system admins out there
