    Hi have a big problem at the school that i work at:

    all of a sudden, the network has fallen over.

    what is happening is some of our clients will authenticate on one server, some clients will authenticate on the other server and some wont authenticate at all and produce an error message stating that

    "There is a time difference between the client and server and is unable to log you on"

    the odd thing is, the servers can not see each other. if we go to my network places on say our admin server, and try to connect to the pupil server it will say

    "the servers clock is not syncoronizing with the primary domain controllers clock"

    If we try to force a replication on the servers, we get the message

    "there is a time difference between the client and server"

    i think we have established that is a problem with the time settings on the server but dont know where to start

    any ideas!!!

    any help to websites or info will be very useful

    Your help is appreciated

    Have you tried setting the time using, net time /setsntp:yourpdc

    in a command prompt and then restarting the Windows Time service?

    found out what the problem was with this. because we have a number of servers on our domain. one of the servers was showing an incorrect date and this was the problem. as soon as we put the correct date in, the problem disappeared.
