timestamp issues

By rhol ·
I have an application which is installed from the same CD on several boxes and the timestamp on created files are being changed by exactly 2 hours on a couple of the systems. We have checked the time settings in control panel and are at aloss as to why this is happenning. Could it be a BIOS issue (same motherboard, but possibly differences in revisions)? OS is NT 4 server, SP 5. Any thoughts?

timestamp issues

Since the app is the same on all machines, and you've checked the date/time applet in control panel on the two that are giving you the wrong time stamp, I can only suggest checking that again and paying particular attention to timezone and chacking the checkbox for daylight savings time. It seems suspicious that it's exactly 2 hours off. I assume the machines that are generating this problem show the correct time in the system tray. If not, and if all machines pick up the current time from adomain controller at logon, then you might also check that these two machine have either the currrent user or Domain Users in the Power Users group on the local machine (via user manager).

Hope this helps.

Although the answer was a good one it didn't resolve the issue.
