Re-sync?? Is the server's time updated, and does Domino know?

yes the server is showing the correct time.  If i enter a new calendar entry, it reflects the correct time.  just the entries that were in the calendar prior to the time change are off by 1 hour.

All calendar times should be in UTC internally, so time changes shouldn't matter and you should NEVER have to adjust anything. The server should be told when a DST is to be applied.  Likewise, the client. Is that done correctly?

not sure about that.  That is handled by notes admin.  This calendar issue is on the user end.

And do ALL users see that the meeting has the wrong time? What if you personally have a look?

I haven't heard anyone else having issues so I'm going to assume it's just this 1 user.
I instructed him to logoff notes and reboor so that his PC clock is recycled.  Then I instructed him to launch the server version of his email client withcalendar versus running a local replica version.  If the server version shows the correct times, then I will delete his local and then create a noew local replica But thats all I can figure.

Maybe the timezone settings on his PC are different? Either in Notes (Location document) or the PC itself.

I would think that also, however if he enters new entries since the time change, those entries are correct.  It's just the ones from prior to the time change.

These new entries may seem correct, but what will happen when the time changes again, in October ?? Check the TZ info in the Document Properties for the date fields.
