Information about how to run the Update Time Zones Wizard multiple timesThe Update Time Zones Wizard can be run multiple times. When you apply update 925874, the update creates a candidate table in the OrganizationName_MSCRM database. The candidate table lists the users, the Microsoft Dynamics CRM entities, and the Microsoft Dynamics CRM records that have to be changed to comply with the DST changes. The Update Time Zones Wizard reads the information in the candidate table to obtain a list of the records that may have to be updated. The wizard updates the candidate table by using information about the records that have been updated. Therefore, if you run the wizard after you update the records, the wizard will not update these records again.
Time that is required to run the Update Time Zones WizardThe time that is required to complete the wizard depends on several factors. These factors include the following factors:
