Specs: Windows Server 2003
We have changed the date format of the local system account that is running a service. My question is, do we need to restart the service for the changes to take effect?

I never met a service that had a date/time format associated with it.

So what are you talking about? You changed the date format on the system?

There is a service in windows 2003 and it is called ' Windows Time' which is Maintains date and time synchronization on all clients and servers in the network. If you read the posted carefully, Daniel's which he mean is " Date Format" NOT "DATA Format".

Netsecurity when you look at the Windows Time Service do you see anything related to the date format?

Do you see any display format option in any service?

I would still like to know how you can change the date format for an account. Clearly there is a misunderstanding between what the service does and what the program the service is running does.

No you would not need to stop and start the time service to set the date display format. It should be set after you click apply/ok.
