we have a server that somehow got behind in time by 5 minutes. I mentioned it to the sysadmin and next thing I knew she had changed the time on the server ahead 5 minutes. First thought was panic and what is going to happen to the database now. Nothing seemed to happen. We haven't rebooted the server yet or restarted the database that was running on that server yet. I could see some really disasterous scenarios if the time was pushed back, but essentially we skipped about 5 minutes of the day. Anyone ever have this happen before or have any comments on things they could see coming down the line when the database restarts? Received on Tue Jun 17 2008 - 07:52:31 CDT
