SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • On a target device, you run a Microsoft Windows CE 5.0 image that includes the Windows Networking API/Redirector (SMB/CIFS) component.
  • You connect the device to a file share that is located on a Windows XP-based computer.
  • While an application on the device is writing to a file on the file share, you change the time zone setting on the device or on the Windows XP-based computer.
  • The application closes the file.
In this scenario, the time stamp for the Modified property of the file matches the system time on the device. However, you expect the time stamp for the Modified property to match the system time on the Windows XP-based computer.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because of a code defect. When you change the local time zone setting, the delta value to the time zone of the server is not changed. The delta value is stored when the Server Message Block (SMB) session is established.
