Time Difference

I added a new user to Win 2000 Active Directory and received the following error:

The system can not log you on due to the following error:

There is a time difference between the client and server.

I was however able to login as another user as well as myself.

Any insight is appreciated.

Here's a possible fix from KB232386:

To resolve this issue, log on to your computer locally using an account with administrative privileges and set the time and date to match the time and date on the domain controller that validates your logon. Below is list of steps that can be used to synchronize the time.

Click Start, Run
Type in CMD and click OK
At the command prompt type something similar to the following:NET TIME /DOMAIN:name /SET

Where "name" is the domain name being used by the computer. If you are not certain what the domain name should be replace name with "%userdomain%" without the quotes.

Here's an address for the full KB article:

Hope this helps.
