PRB: SQL for NT Not Report Time Change Without Restart


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft SQL Server version 4.2x

If the system time is changed on a Windows NT server, SQL Server for Windows NT will not report the new time as the result of a SELECT GETDATE() operation until the SQL Server is stopped and restarted.

This behavior differs from SQL Server for OS/2, which will report the new system time without restarting.

This behavior was changed in SQL Server version 4.2P33 for Windows NT. Starting with 4.2P33, SQL Server will synchronize its time with the system time whenever a user issues a Transact-SQL getdate() request.

Additional query words: Transact-SQL datetime date time Windows NT
