I had a server crash (SBS 2003) a month ago and forgot to apply the DST patch when I restored the system. So now my server clock is wrong and all the network clients have the wrong time forced down from the server. If I patch the server only, will I need to do anything with Exchange calendars that are server based???? I am not 100% sure based on what I read from MS. Any advice appreciated.

NOTE: The information stores were lost so any appointment data on the server was entered since the crash and without the DST patch on the server.

Ok we are past the 2 week extended DST so you just have to worry about items entered for next year.

You should apply the windows server patch as well as the exchange patch.

I am not completely sure but any Calendar items currently entered for the extended DST time period for next year might have to be corrected. Please have your users verify.

So they won't have any problems with appointments between now and March 09 correct?
