Desktop clock not in sync with server clock

By chrisj ·
Hello everyone,

Last Sunday was the start of daylight savings. As of Tuesday some desktop clocks are correct while others are still off by 1 hour. Any suggestions on the best way to resolve this problem. I searched Microsoft but no luck. I am running 2003 server in a domain environment.

Many thanks.

Check the desktops

It could be that the daylight savings check for some of the desktops is off?

Patches Up To Date?

Is the MS patch for DST installed?

You can also setup a time server if you have not done so. This is what we have running here.

patches for sure

by mark In reply to Patches Up To Date?

The microsoft updates should have fixed it, however they may not be using the correct time zone to begin with. Go to adjust date/time to verify it is setup correct. You could also use the command net time /setsntp:{Server Address} to pull the time from the server.

DST Issues here too

by pmalaison In reply to Desktop clock not in sync ...

I am having DST issues too. I have my SBS 2000 server (acting as a PDC) serving time through W32TM. I needed to do this so that I could make sure that all my desktop were in synch with the exchange server and my VoIP server.
All machines, desktop and server, ended being 2 hours ahead of my time server. I had to unchecked the automatically adjust for Daylight saving time boxes on all the machines and resync. If I just adjusted the time, they would jump forward again at the next resync.
