        SMS 2003 will experience a full software inventory when a daylight saving time change occurs.

        Without installation of this hotfix, a full software inventory is triggered with the daylight saving time change. When each client in the hierarchy submits a full software inventory record, the result can be a significant backlog of software inventory data on the site server.

        With the installation of this hotfix, files that have changed by exactly 1-hour will not be reported in a software inventory cycle. The file modified times reported to the server will appear in the client's local time. Some file times on the server will be adjusted for daylight saving and some will not, depending on when the files were reported by the client.
