Daylight Savings Time

Since server admins have to deal with Daylight Savings Time (DST) twice a year, this issue should be resolved with satisfaction – once and for all – in an environment. A very good post by Paul Randal on this topic is titled How does daylight savings time affect disaster recovery?

An even better idea was given in the comments: Why not set the computer time to GMT (UTC) and store all times in the DB in GMT (UTC) as well? This way one does not need to bother with DST at the server level anymore.
