For those who want to know what this hotfix is for...

Overview:
An issue has been identified in Exchange 2003 where Exchange System Managerís Message Tracking functionality incorrectly displays tracked messages by one hour ahead.  This issue occurs after installation of the February 2007 cumulative time zone update (KB 931836).  Itís important to note that the actual data in the message tracking logs is correct; itís merely a presentation issue in ESMís Message Tracking.  Additionally, once we enter into Daylight Savings Time, this issue will no longer manifest itself.

Will this be released as a regular update through Windows Update / WSUS in the future?  We do use message tracking, but only for troubleshooting.

I seriously doubt it.  Most likely you will need to call MSFT for the hotfix or if you have a premier account you can download it.  Let's see when the article is released

Do what I did.  Download, extract and zip it up and use it if you want.  It's ridiculous that MS would not offer this as an update and make you call.  I also find this line in the overview to be quite misleading "Additionally, once we enter into Daylight Savings Time, this issue will no longer manifest itself."  Aren't we already into Daylight Savings Time?

The problem is that we manage a lot of different companies Exchange servers via a single WSUS platform and the cost of approving an update for 50 servers via 2 clicks is a hellavlot cheaper (and relativly safer) than downloading and installing a non-public KB hot fix, that for us, is a non-critical issue.

This DST thing has been a complete nightmare / disaster.  This is worse than Y2K.  At least with Y2K, everybody just took 3 years and bought new stuff.  This was alwful.  Final, final, final patches being released two to four weeks before the change!!

We labbed every possible senereo and it still went nuts on the day.  TZMOVE sucked. 

We are expecting more calls on Monday since the old DST date kicks in this weekend.

Don't even get me started on Windows / Exchange 2000.

I'm just wondering if Sydney Australia needs the fix too. It didn't include Sydney Australia in the list.

Is anyone seeing this again?  I've seen it on 3 servers beginning 3/2/08.  All Exchange 2003 SP2.

Thank you.

A bit off topic, but have they fixed DST for OMA?  I'm not finding a solution to that one, and my OMA calendars are short an hour.  OWA and Outlook are fine, of course.
