It's a windows box and was locked over the weekend so I could remote connect over vpn from home. I have checked the option to automatically adjust for daylight saving in time zone data and time properties.

Hi Ben,

SAS apparently keeps track of the system time while running and recognizes large changes backwards and possibly forwards. Is your system a Windows one? I never have my system on during daylight savings time changes (except once) and Windows always asks for confirmation to change the time while restarting the system. So at that moment I never have SAS running. But one system at work is continuously running (making VPN, remote network connections and remote desktop possible at all times). It silently changed time last weekend, I did not have to do anything. But SAS wasn't running at that time.

My computer is not running during DST changes, neither am I. My computer multi-boots OS's, each of them adapting the DST twice a year.
