The seconds field is truncated and reset to 00 in the time or date field in the Site Server Membership directory database. For example, if you add the Last Date Visited attribute to your properties, and then set the time to include a seconds value, when you close the Properties dialog box and reopen it, the seconds field is not saved, but is reset to 00.


A supported fix is now available from Microsoft, but it is only intended to correct the problem that is described in this article. Apply it only to computers that are experiencing this specific problem. This fix may receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by this problem, Microsoft recommends that you wait for the next Site Server service pack that contains this hotfix.

To resolve this problem immediately, contact Microsoft Product Support Services to obtain the fix. For a complete list of Microsoft Product Support Services phone numbers and information about support costs, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

NOTE: In special cases, charges that are ordinarily incurred for support calls may be canceled if a Microsoft Support Professional determines that a specific update will resolve your problem. The typical support costs will apply to additional support questions and issues that do not qualify for the specific update in question.

The English version of this fix should have the following file attributes or later:

   Date      Time                 Size    File name     Platform
   2/23/2000 6:06:25PM            210,592 Dscomobj.dll  x86
   2/23/2000 6:07:43PM            283,200 Storedb.dll   x86
   2/23/2000 6:06:47PM            343,312 Dscomobj.dll  alpha
   2/23/2000 6:07:49PM            494,352 Storedb.dll   alpha


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Site Server 3.0.


Steps to Reproduce the Problem

  1. From the Site Server Microsoft Management Console (MMC), open the Membership Directory Manager to the members container.
  2. Create a new member, and then add the Last Date Visited attribute.
  3. Modify the Last Date Visited by clicking the associated Select button, and then modify the time to include a seconds value other than double zero (00).
  4. Click OK to close the Time/Date dialog box, and then click OK to close the user's Properties dialog box.
  5. Open the the user's Properties dialog box again.

Result: The seconds field is not saved, but reset to 00.
