JSI Tip 1885. Do NOT perform Y2K testing in a production environment!

Rolling the system date forward and back again can cause data and Windows NT integrity problems.

Date sensitive functions, such as DHCP leases, WINS registration, and auditing can get seriously messed up.

See Knowledge Base article Q244703 - XGEN: Advancing and Rolling Back System Time Clock for Y2K Test.
