Daylight savings system agent weirdness

Hey all,

I have a report scheduled with an email routing style for every weekday at 4PM. When we “fell back” for DST it started running at 3PM.

Yesterday, I moved the schedule forward one hour. It executed at 4, and then executed again every 2 minutes until midnight and sent like a thousand emails. Then it stopped on its own at midnight. I have no idea why. This morning, the schedule said next run is this afternoon at 4 as expected, but I have disabled the schedule. My only thought at the moment is to try a new schedule. Anybody ever seen this before?

It’s definitely been discussed on this forum, search for it and you should find the post.

Believe that it’s possibly fixed in a later version of the Task Agent delivered with a patch update.


Thanks, found the relevant thread:
