Hi

I work on a network with about 250 nodes, which all run windows 2000 professional. The servers run windows 2000 server.

However there is one computer on the network that runs windows xp sp 2. This one computer will not keep its time at the correct time, every time a user logs on, the clock is one hour behind the real time.

With the correct permissions enabled users can change the clock to the correct time, however this is very impractical, as the computer should be getting its time from the server.

Has anyone got anyt ideas as to why win xp on a 2000 based network is not keeping the correct clock time

Cheers

Wayne

Do you have the option to correct for Daylight Saving Time ticked?

Double click the System Tray Clock, Time Zone Tab, and check Automatically Adjust Clock for Daylight Saving Changes. OK

BTW Clocks go back next weekend!!! Extra hour in bed..... :-)

I'm not an IT professional in any way, but the problem seemed obvious to me.

Why have one XP machine working with 249 others (plus the server) which are all running 2000?

Is this problem definatly related to the different operating system. I worked in an office with a similar problem. We were running both 2k and XP machines (on a much smaller scale though) but 2 always had an incorrect time and date. The problem turned out to be that these two machines had an incorrect time and date set in the BIOS which kept overiding the settings given by the server.
