Upcoming Daylight Savings Patch for BizTalk Server

So I see today that BizTalk Server (among many other applications) is affected by the whole screwy US Daylight Savings change for 2007. Specifically for BizTalk, you’ll find the statement “Microsoft Biztalk Server 2006: Final update will be available in March 2007 through CSS. For more information see KB article 931961 (to be published by January 26).” The KB article isn’t online yet, but any thoughts as to what is affected by the change? My money is on the “service windows” for ports. Off the top of my head, I can’t think of what else would care about the change. Other guesses before the KB article appears?

  1. Nice new blog theme!

    Regarding the fix, I’m wondering that, too. Why wouldn’t these types of things read from the server time?

    Anything specific to BizTalk for calculating a period of time (how long something runs)? Or formatting XML data? Base functoids? I know a standard XML date/time field might include time zone information as well (2006-01-29T12:01:01-08:00).

    Like you said, just guesses. It’ll be interesting to see the KB (which was supposed to be published by 26 Jan).
