Known issues in this update

Symptoms

The next step

Starting at 00:00 on Saturday, September 10, 2022, the official time in Chile will be adjusted 60 minutes ahead in accordance with the official announcement of the Chilean government on August 9, 2022 that the time zone will change to Daylight Saving Time (DST). This moves daylight savings time, which was previously September 4, to September 10.

Symptoms if the workaround is not used on devices between September 4, 2022 and September 11, 2022:

  • The time displayed in Windows and applications will be incorrect.
  • Applications and cloud services that use the date and time for built-in features such as Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Outlook, notifications, and meeting scheduling may be up to 60 minutes behind.
  • ​Automation that uses date and time, such as scheduled tasks, may not run at the expected time.
  • The timestamp for transactions, files, and logs will vary by 60 minutes.
  • ​Operations based on time-sensitive protocols such as Kerberos can cause authentication failures when trying to login or access resources.
  • Windows devices and applications outside of Chile may also be affected if they connect to servers or devices in Chile, or if they schedule or attend meetings in Chile from a different location or time zone. Windows devices outside of Chile should not use the workaround, as this will change their local time on the device.

To resolve this issue, see Possible Issues Caused by Daylight Saving Time in Chile .

We are working on a solution and will provide an update in the next release.

Note . We plan to release an update to support this change; however, there may not be enough time to properly build, test, and release such an update before the change goes into effect. Please use the workaround above.
