Please note the following, this fix does not appear to be available through WSUS. You will need to download it manually then distribute it using Startup Scripts, SMS, or SCCM.

Remember you need to test whatever method you are going to use (Hotfix through Scripts, SMS, SCCM, TZEdit) on a test environment first and on all the platforms you are going to support before implementing it on the production systems.

On how you will deploy the MSI package through active directory and Group policy (GPOs) please find the below link.

Note: Some of you might have faced problems with Outlook Calendar items being changed 1 hour earlier after applying the DST patch. This is an expected issue and this is how it should be.



For some customers, this is okay as if they were scheduling appointments with other people in different time zones, then their appointments must be shifted 1 hour earlier. For some other customers, they do not want this to happen.



Please take a look at the following resource concerning how to control Outlook Calendar with DST changes

My own recommendation is to let users shift their calender items manually to avoid any unexpected issues.

the changes are happened only for the items that was created before the DST time change but after the patching everything will be normal.

The difference between DNS and NDS

  Novell Directory Services(NDS) - Novell Directory Services (NDS) is a popular software product for managing access to computer resources and keeping track of the users of a  network , such as a company's  intranet , from a single point of administration. Using NDS, a network administrator can set up and control a  database  of users and manage them using a  directory  with an easy-to-use graphical user interface ( GUI ). Users of computers at remote locations can be added, updated, and managed centrally. Applications can be distributed electronically and maintained centrally. NDS can be installed to run under  Windows NT , Sun Microsystem's Solaris, and IBM's  OS/390  as well as under Novell's own  NetWare  so that it can be used to control a multi-platform network. NDS is generally considered an industry  benchmark  against which other products, such as Microsoft's Active Directory, must compete. Lucent Technologies plans to integrate NDS into its own QIP product
