It's *THAT* time of the year, again...

Yes, for those in North America (or in my case, who administer servers in the Northern Hemisphere), Daylight Savings Time is creeping up on us again.

To be better prepared, IBM will be hosting this coming February 27 a second Notes/Domino Open Mic Session this month to discuss all things DST:
IBM will host an Open Mic conference call with Lotus Development and Support Engineers to answer your questions about DST issues in Lotus Notes/Domino® on Wednesday, February 27, 2008.
Title: Notes and Domino: Daylight Saving Time
Date: February 27, 2008
Time: 10:00 am Eastern US time

Questions can be posted in advance of the call as a response to the Invitation to Notes/Domino DST Open Mic call in the Notes/Domino 8 forum.
DST in the United States is scheduled to start on March 9 and end on November 2.

I don't think those that went thru the major patching early or late last year need to worry about this anymore........right?

TIA,

Hi Tim,

You are correct. Those that correctly patched their systems last year and had no issues should be fine. To be on the safe side it's always recommended to be on the latest server/client releases.
