Change PC time on PC with win NT 4.0 log

By jrinehart ·
We have an NT 4.0 network with Win95/98 workstations. Installed a time and attendance program that uses PC time. I want a way to use login script command to update the PC workstation time when someone logs in. I know it can be done. Just can not find help. Any other suggestions besides the above will be appreciated.

It is possible to use the "net time command. Type NET at a command prompt. With that you should be able to set the time of the workstation to another source like a server.

Good Luck.

Command in answer2 is perfect.
If this does not work it is not a problem with the command, the users do not have permission to set the local machine time.
ensure that the users have the local
"SeSystemTimePrivilege" user right on the local machine.
This can be checked in local user manager > Policies > User Rights > Change System time.
The default is for only local Administrators, Domian Admins, and Server Operators to change local machine time.
You may need to add "builtin\Domain Users" group to this list and it will work great.

On NT Workstations, you can install the Time Service found on the Server Resource Kit. This will syncronize the workstations clock with the Time Server without having to give the users the ability to change the system time. You have to configure a server as a time server first (see Q131715).
