    We are running Netware 6. Our users are mostly on a Windows XP platform and their clocks are usually 15 minutes late.

    We checked the server and the server time drifts. We think it might be a hardware problem.

    We then disabled the "Set Station Time" on all the clients so they won't sync to the faulty server time. When logged in locally as an admin, the system time stays correct after boot up. When the user, who is a power user, logs in, the clock will revert back to being 15 minutes late again.

    I gave the user local admin rights, corrected the time, then did a reboot. The system time stayed correct. I changed the user to a power user again, then did a reboot, and the time was late again.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
