Daylights saving time running scheduled tasks twice?

I use Windows server 2003. My question is if I have a scheduled task that is to execute 02.15 every night and the time is changed back from 3.00 to 2.00 due to daylights saving. Will my task execute twice that night? Describe how it works please.

1 Solution
Yes, it will run twice; the task scheduler is not DST aware. Check here for details:
