Existing Scheduled Tasks Show Inconsistent Run Time After Daylight-Saving Time (1814)

  • 0 Ratings


Why do my scheduled tasks show an incorrect scheduled time after the changeover to daylight-saving time?


After the change to daylight-saving time (DST), scheduled tasks that were created prior to the time change display the next run time, which is one hour ahead of the start time entered. However, if you right-click the scheduled task, the scheduled start time is the correct time.

To fix this problem permanently, you can upgrade to VirtualCenter 1.3 or later.

Note: If a designated time to perform a scheduled task is 2:00am on the day DST begins, the task is scheduled to perform at 3:00am on that day instead, because on the day that DST begins, 2:00am does not exist. The task returns to the normal scheduled time (2:00am) the next day.
