Hi everyone,
Does anyone know what is going on with my server's time. When I enter the "net time" command on my PC I get the following..

Current time \\OFFICESERVER is 3\22\2007 8:45am
local time(GMT:-06:00) at \\OFFICESERVER is 3\22\2007 7:45am
the command completed successfully

Does anyone know how i can get my server on sync...???

Thanks,
AMD2800

I don't see anything wrong?

Current time \\OFFICESERVER is 3\22\2007 8:45am

- this is the time your Server is serving out.

local time(GMT:-06:00) at \\OFFICESERVER is 3\22\2007 7:45am

- this is the time your server is set at since it has the checkmark to adjust for daylight savings time.

if daylights savings was not in effect you would have the 2 times exactly the same.

Just curious, but have you applied the Microsoft DST patches to all your machines on your network??

So basically the time is correct on the XP machines and the time is correct on the server itself, all are in the same time zone, all have use DTS checked but when the XP machines make the folder it is one hour off?

If you have the time KB applied then I still have to htink there is some setting in the time settings not adjusted (wrong time zone, automatically adjust DST not checked, or the time forced to be off)

You are running central time? You are using DST checked?

It seems like the patch is working when I test it for Nov 4th 1:59am when it goes to 2:01 it goes back to 1:00am.... That's fine
what I am concern about. It's right now the time when i create a folder on the server: eg
Current time: 11:48am
Create a folder x.txt on the server at 11:49am and it shows that it was created at 11:49am but when I look on my XP machine it shows 12:49pm. The curretn time on my XP machine is 11:49am
Am I just not getting it...??

can you provide the net time from your xp machine? Have you checked they are patched and in the correct time zones and see where they are syncing to?

Also what OS is your server. Remember that microsoft did not send out a time zone update patch for this time zone update. There are some manual ways to change the W2k os though.

If I run the Net time on my server it only give me one current time with the correct time

Current time at \\OFFICESERVER IS 3/22/2007 1:39PM
