Incorrect time on networked pc's??

By Mikebyrne000 ·
When users log onto the network there clock is out by 7 minutes

They log onto the "Falcon" domain but where do I change the clock so they are all the same??

(Ive checked the bios clock and windows clock on the pc's and they are correct, its just when they log onto the network)

The computers are running xp and server 2003

To find your Server

by Chris910 In reply to That's what im trying at ...

The simplest way to find your server.

(with the proviso that it is appropriate for your business. Off hours, weekend etc.)

Set up a computer so that you can view it while accessing the network cables. open a command prompt, Ping -t and then pull the cables and replace them one at a time. when you have pulled the connection for the DC the ping connection time will drop out and then restart when the server is plugged in. Presto, DC found!
[If you do it for just 4 or 5 seconds at a time your users may see a timeout error or have other minor issues but should be ok.]

You may also be able to use the
pathping -n command as a tool to help locate the DC the host server may show up in the routers list depending on configuration.

The pathping just went from my machine to the .11 address

Im leaning towards it being on .10 because I'm having the same error accessing it

I'm puzzled by this

by neilb@uk In reply to Incorrect time on network ...

Can you access Active directory Users and computers on your workstation? If you can, and you have an Admin login, you ought to be able to do anything.

The DC will only accept a domain logon, all of its permissions come from the domain so there ought to be no way to keep you out.

Edited to add, if you can't, then install it! Windows 2003 server admin pack.

But you're accessing by RDP

by Churdoo In reply to Im puzzled too

And the permissions for that are dorked. That leaves you 2x choices

1. Find the physical host that the DC is running on and connect to that host with the virtualization tools so you can open the console of the DC

2. Fix the RDP permissions by whatever means appropriate. This will require access to Active Directory Users and Computers, and/or Group Policy, and/or Terminal Services Configuration to give the Administrator or an administrator permission to log onto the DC via RDP.

Access to Active Directory

I have full access to Active Directory.

I can remote desktop to all the servers bar 2

Churdoo gave you your options...

by CG IT In reply to Access to Active Director ...

anything after that is simply posting to post.

You mention this is a virtual machine. If you don't know anything about virtual machines, the the only other option is "if you can't fix it, you'll have to hire someone who can".
