The Bug Report

Microsoft: If you are running Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4 or Service Pack 5 on a multiple processor computer, you may not switch over smoothly to daylight saving time. Microsoft officials say a lag of three hours or so may occur. The problem has been fixed in Service Pack 6, although if you don't want to install the whole service pack, Microsoft has made the solution available as part of the BIOSfix hot-fix. You can get this for Intel machines at ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/winnt/winnt-public/fixes/usa/NT40/hotfixespostSP5/Y2K/BIOS3-fix/Biosfixi.exe. For Alpha computers, go to ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/winnt/winnt-public/fixes/usa/NT40/hotfixes-postSP5/Y2K/BIOS3-fix/Biosfixa.exe.

Novell discovered that, in NetWare 4.1, if you give the command NLIST user /a /b you will see a log-in date on a bindery 3.x server shown as 100. According to the company, it is strictly a display problem and does not affect the underlying data. You can fix it by getting the file NLSTY2K.EXE from support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/tidfinder.cgi?2955265.
