Daylight Saving Time Change Problem With Watchguard Fireware 8.3.1 and Watchguard System Manager 8.3.1
Again, another report from Alan.  He has had problems with Watchguard products.  Here is what he had to say:

Watchguard Fireware 8.3.1 and Watchguard System Manager 8.3.1 is reporting incorrect times and symptoms.

Symptoms:
1) Log rolls and scheduled reports advanced one hour with DST change
2) Changing the time of the scheduled log rolls and reports to the desired time results in service shutdowns - service restarts fail with an automatic stoppage of their service - the server itself must be restarted to correct the issue.
3) Webblocker updates report having occurred one hour after the Windows scheduler task reports having launched and and completed the task.


Thanks Alan for the information.
