Hello All,

What will be the impact of  leap second bug  on SharePoint infrastructure?

Hello UjwalaIDC,

Since this leap second will be an "extra second", some systems will consider the date as hh:mm:59 then hh:mm:60 and only then hh:mm:00.

All the information I found about this regarding the Windows eco-system are that after a very long hh:mm:59 second (really 2 seconds long), it will go to hh:mm:00 without the extra hh:mm:60.

So technically, nothing to worry about.
