We had this problem creep up again for a client....

Mobile Application:       Mobile Platform:

Issue reproduced (Yes or No): Yes

Issue applies to LAN, Web or both: LAN

Steps to duplicate the issue:

  1. Find an Activity, Lead, Opportunity, or other database record with CreateDate, ModifyDate, OriginalDate, NeededDate, etc. that is between 3/13/2010 10:00:00PM to 3/14/2010 1:59:59AM

Re: DST Warning

Yes!... There is a "Gap" (Bermuda Triangle ;-) in the SalesLogix system where you do not want to be scheduling or have items scheduled that fall into either the spring or fall TZ switchover.


This weekend (at least in the USA) this "gap" is going to open again and you will have issues if you have things scheduled....


This is for all versions/SP levels of SalesLogix since the system went TZ/DST aware right thru the current 7.5.3.


Thanks for the reminder Ron!

Re: DST Warning

What's being done on the SalesLogix end to address this?


Since the recent DST changeover (11/7/2010), we've run into multiple customer issues, where records could not be updated.  In one scenario, existing records modified on a data form do not retain the changes.  The other scenario involved coded update routines failing, with the error message "row cannot be located for updating.  Some values may have changed..."


In each case, a good deal of troubleshooting time was required in order to identify the issue as the known SalesLogix DST bug.  In each case, the customer was billed for the time spent.  Given this is a known issue, that's not new, that doesn't seem right.


Is SalesLogix actively working on a resolution to this issue?  I know we faced some of the same last DST change.

Re: DST Warning

Fix is to issue a SQL command to affected table(s), updating MODIFYDATE value of all records carrying the DST date to some other value.
