Query re: date and time with scheduled tasks RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    I have created a series of scheduled tasks (mostly forced shutdowns) on a group of computers running windows steadystate.  On the weekend British Summertime began and the clocks went forward one hour.  Our computers however, did not change their times, and consequently the computers will now shut down an hour later than they are supposed to.  Was Steadystate responsible for the computer time not changing like it would normally?  The operating system of the computers is xp professional.

     

    Any information would be appreciated.

    Hi Symi,

     

    Thanks for posting here!

     

    Symi, I'd like to inform you that for Daylight Savings Time changes, we need to install some updates from Windows Update. Therefore, I'd like to confirm if you have enabled Windows Disk Protection. If so, let's check whether the updates were installed on the computer. We can enable SteadyState Schedule Software updates to keep those updates. Meanwhile, I'd like to include some related articles below:

    Also, DST is not mentioned in SteadyState handbook and I don't see this issue on my test machine. Therefore, we will still check and confirm if the issue is caused by SteadyState or by other factors.
