Incorrect start dates are displayed for the scheduled tasks that are deployed by Group Policy preferences in Windows Server 2008 or in Windows Vista
Consider the following scenario:
- You join a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista to a Windows Server 2008-based domain.
- You enable a Group Policy preferences setting that schedules a task to run at a specific time in a Group Policy object (GPO).
- You apply the GPO to the computer.
In this scenario, an incorrect date for the scheduled task is displayed on the computer. This incorrect date is one day earlier or one day later.
For example, you use the Central Time (US and Canada) time zone and schedule the task to run at the 6:00 PM 12/30/2009 time on the computer. However, the 6:00 PM 12/29/2009 time that is one day earlier is displayed.
