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.!&p=29107#post29107

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

Australia Daylight Saving Planning Guide

How to address time zone changes by using the Time Zone Data Update Tool for Microsoft Office Outlook

How to address daylight saving time by using the Exchange Calendar Update Tool

*IMPORTANT: Please read carefully the above document and resource well and test them in a test environment first before applying them to production.

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.

Recreating a missing VMFS datastore partition in VMware vSphere 5.x and 6.x

    Symptoms A datastore has become inaccessible. A VMFS partition table is missing.   Purpose The partition table is required only during a rescan. This means that the datastore may become inaccessible on a host during a rescan if the VMFS partition was deleted after the last rescan. The partition table is physically located on the LUN, so all vSphere hosts that have access to this LUN can see the change has taken place. However, only the hosts that do a rescan will be affected.   This article provides information on: Determining whether this is the same problem Resolving the problem   Cause This issue occurs because the VMFS partition can be deleted by deleting the datastore from the vSphere Client. This is prevented by the software, if the datastore is in use. It can also happen if a physical server has access to the LUN on the SAN and does an install, for example.   Resolution To resolve this issue: Run the  partedUtil  command on the host with the issues and verify if your output

Unlock the VMware VM vmdk file

  Unlock the VMware VM vmdk file Kill -9 PID Sometimes a file or set of files in a VMFS become locked and any attempts to edit them or delete will give a device or resource busy error, even though the vm associated with the files is not running. If the vm is running then you would need to stop the vm to manipulate the files. If you know that the vm is stopped then you need to find the ESX server that has the files locked and then stop the process that is locking the file(s). 1. Logon to the ESX host where the VM was last known to be running. 2.  vmkfstools -D /vmfs/volumes/path/to/file  to dump information on the file into /var/log/vmkernel 3.  less /var/log/vmkernel  and scroll to the bottom, you will see output like below: a.
