Usrmgr logon hours Differ on Pdc and Bdc

By minesh ·
I'm hoping that someone may have a solution for this
situation. I'm restricting the logon hours for our users
using Usrmgr for our Windows NT 4.0 environment. I have
one PDC and 2 BDC's. I apply the restricted hours to a
user on the PDC using usrmgr. When I check the BDC's the
hours that I've just selected on the PDC appear
completely different on the BDC's. If I change the hours
on the BDC's they appear different on the PDC. I have
synchronized the BDC's with the PDC but this has not
resolved the problem.
Thanking you in advance for any help.

A couple of questions:

When you say you synchronized the BDC with the PDC, I assume that you mean you did this from the PDC?

Did the synchronization complete? Are the BDC's on the same local network or are they across a WAN link? Are the BDC's in the same time zone?

And exactly how different are the hours?

I am wondering if you can create a test user and check to see the user exists once synchronization is completed on the BDC's.

Are you using the Windows NT Time Service? If you are running it and the PDC is the master time server, run this command on the BDC's to see if the issue is resolved:

NET TIME /DOMAIN:<domain_name> /SET /Y

I am really interested in this issue as I have never seen this one in my 10 years of supporting NT.

hello BFilmFan thank you for replying to my question. I just fixed the problem that I was having. The time zone on the PDC was set to the wrong time zone now the logon hours are appearing the same for user accounts on the PDC and BDC's. This was a weird one but it makes sense that this should cause a problem. thanks again for replying.
