I have 150 repositories and I really dont want to go into each repository and open the Timezone tab. My question Is can I just change one line in the srcsafe.ini

Below are the instructions for the DST patch for VSS 2005.

VSS 2005

All clients and servers require the Microsoft DST patch. It is not currently know if this patch will be applied automatically or will need to be installed manually.

Visual SourceSafe 2005 administrators must perform the following task after all server and client computer operating systems have been updated:

1. Start Visual SourceSafe Administrator.
2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
3. In the Options dialog box, click the TimeZone tab.
4. Click OK, and then exit Visual SourceSafe Administrator.

These steps will update the Srcsafe.ini file by using the updated operating system DST values.

Does anyone have any advice.

Below is area referencing the timezone in the srcsafe.ini

[TimeZone]

Name = (GMT-06:00) Central Time (US & Canada)

TZ_Bias = 360

TZ_DaylightBias = -60

TZ_DaylightDate = 0000/04/01 02:00:00.000

TZ_StandardBias = 0

TZ_StandardDate = 0000/10/05 02:00:00.000

TZ_UseDaylightSavingTime = Yes

Yes, you can update the INI file directly. What I would do is use the VSS Admin tool manually on one repository, then copy the resulting changes into the other repositories using a Perl script or similar. Note: this assumes that all the repositories are located in the same time zone.

Thanks.. They are all in the same timezone. There is a tool Actual search and replace that I can use to just replace a specific line in the ini. It will search the entire drive for the line and replace it.
