Does anyone know why I would get a message that prevents me from see a mapped drive. The message is "Time and Date difference between client and server". Workstation is Win XP and server is Win 2003. Any thoughts?

I would assume it is related to this problem:

Kerberos is failing.

THANK YOU, I RAN THAT COMMAND AND THE TIME AND DATE WAS SET BETWEEN THE DOMAIN AND THE CLIENT, HOWEVER, THIS PROBLEM OCCURS WITH A CONNECTION TO A NAS WIN 2003 SERVER WHICH IS NOT MY DOMAIN. THIS NAS SERVER RESIDES ON OUR NETWORK AS ANOTHER COMPUTER OF WHICH WE ARE MAPPED TO AND THE DRIVES ARE USED FOR OUR CLIENT DATA. DURING THE DAY AFTER HOURS OF USE I WOULD OCCASSIONALLY GET THIS MESSAGE AND HAVE TO WAIT A FEW MINUTES BEFORE I CAN ACCESS THE DATA ONCE AGAIN. THE DOMAIN SERVER DOES NOT SEND ME THIS ERROR AT ALL. ANY FURTHER THOUGHTS?

Could this be related to the spring time change? (did it just happen?) if 1 node is set to change time automaticly, and another is not then they can not sycronize properly (big international systems usually have this problem, that's why we have special regional time servers) I've had it happen on small networks that smare files too. Try to 'set time to internet time' on your'date and time settings' on all the machines.

More on the previous answer...
This is why the military and most major networks work in UTC time, rather than local.

Right click on My Computer, go to Manage, chose Services and Applications, select Services and see if the Windows Time service is runing. This service is responsable for maintain the date and time synchronization on all clients and servers in the network. This service must run and must be started automatic

Get the administrator of the NAS device to correct the time on the device. It probably has the old rule for daylight savings time (last weekend in April) instead of the new one (first weekend).
