Default DST in NY BES

Please Login to Remove!

I attended a webinar from RIM and got a bit confused. Called RIM many times describing them where I was, what version of BES (4.1.4) I was running and everything else they asked me. All I was trying to find out if the patch was needed or not. All I needed the name of config db table that could tell me that but could not get it. In any event, they told me how to apply it. I did accordingly.

After applying the patch (TimeZoneUpdateFall2008-BES4.1+) I was reviewing to see if all looks OK, I noticed that the SynchDeviceConfig table has for DSTStartMonth or NY as 2. It is going to happen on March 09 09. Called them for the clarification. Now, they tell me that the patch was not needed for BES in NY. They suggested that I should not do anyting about it. They have a copy of the config db and reviewed it. Their findings: Don't do anything. According to them, this is not causing and will not cause any trouble on March 9 for the devices and the BES.

I am not sure. Any ideas, thoughts?
