Exchange 2000 DST Changes

How is one supposed to address the DST changes for Exchange 2000 if
they do not have extended support to get the patch?  Will Microsoft be
providing a workaround like they did for Windows 2000?

I'm referencing the following article:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/930879

It states :

What to do before you run the Exchange tool

Install DST updates
Before you run the Exchange tool, make sure that client and server
computers are updated correctly with the operating system and
application DST updates. These updates must be installed in the
following order: 
1. Install the Windows DST update on servers.  
2. Install the Windows DST update on clients. 
3. Install the Exchange DST update on Exchange Server 2003, on
Exchange 2000 Server, and on Exchange Server 5.5. 

Yet I have searched high and low for an Exchange 2000 DST patch, and
have found nothing....  Must one really purchase extended support with
Microsoft just to get this silly patch?

Thanks for the help....

1. you could upgrade
2. you could just wait it out
3. you could have users move their meetings on 3/12 and again on 4/2

There is a a client tool for updating meetings if you're on Outlook 2003, 
though that won't resolve potential issues with OWA or Blackberry or other 
CDO based products.

For those of us that have decided to forego and not do anything about
the exchange 2000 patch, what would the recommended update order be?

I am a little confused on step 4 below:

1. Install the WindowsDSTupdate on servers.
2. Install the WindowsDSTupdate on clients.
3. Skip exchange 2000 patch
4. Ask outlook users to manually move 1 hour forward all of their
calendar appointments between March 11, 2007 and April 1, 2007 as
these appointments will be off by 1 hour?

And then in November, users need to move their calendar appointments
back 1 hour between Oct 28, 2007 and Nov 4, 2007?

Can anyone confirm with me if this will work?  I fully intend on
asking the powers that be in the small company I work for to upgrade,
but I was wondering if this is a possible workaround for the time
being?

No, you can purchase just the DST patches for $4,000.Call PSS if interested.

The Exchange patch seems to just fix CDO so that programs interfacing to 
Exchange, like OWA, BES (but not Outlook) will be correct. Outlook is 
handled by the client OS patch.

If you don't have Backberrys and don't care if OWA is off during the 
extended DST period, you shouldn't need the Exchange patch.

Thanks for the response,

I know there is also a outlook client utility that is supposed to run
either at the users workstation or against all the user mailboxes for
one time and re-occurring appointments,  Do we need to still do this
if we are not installing the exchange 2000 patch?

Also, we use OWA, what would go wrong with it if we didnt install the
exchange 2000 patch?  Would just the calendar appointments be off 1
hour?

You need to fix the dates somehow. This program is completely unrelated to 
the Exchange patch.

It depends on what people do. The email stamps will also be off, I presume. 
If they create calendar items on OWA for use during the extended DST period, 
they will look fine in OWA but be sent to the attendees one hour off.

We dont use BDO.  We do however use OWA.  I am just trying to gauge
what is the worst that will happen by not doing the exchange 2000
update.  I would like to try and prepare as best as possible.  I am
thinking what I need to do is:

1. Patch the server OS that Exchange runs on (Windows 2000 Server)
2. Patch the desktop OS that Outlook runs on  (Windows XP)
3. Patch Exchange for CDO (this is the step I am looking to skip
because we dont have extended support)
4. Run the Outlook Time Zone Data Update tool, either on the Exchange
server
or on the PC that Outlook is installed on. (Outlook 2003)

Basically, what will not work properly is OWA (timestamps of emails,
and calendar items).  This would be ok I think, as we dont do anything
critical with OWA.

I wonder if OWA will not work properly for just the 3 weeks, March 11
to April 1 and then work properly.

What do you think?

Thanks for the reply Andy...  We have decided to purchase a new
Windows 2003 R2 Server and upgrade to Exchange 2003.

So once the server is in place and I have migrated all the mailboxes
to it, I should do the following in this order?

1. Install KB928388 to patch the Windows Server 2003 R2 operating
system.
2. Install KB926666 to patch Exchange 2003 SP2.
3. Run KB931667 at each users' workstation.

Is that correct?  Am I missing anything??

Thanks again for all your help!
