Hi the date & time of one of my member servers is wrong all the time!!! I set it's date many times but it is still wrong and it came back to year 2006 and wrong month!!! there is no policy for the time on my DC but by default domain members should adjust their date and time with the DC,am I right? the date & time on all clients have been corrected when I remove the check mark of "Automaticly adjust clock for daylight saving changes" and there isn't any problem! but just for this server I couldn't set the date & time!!?? What can I do!!?? I want this server adjust it's date and time with my DC(because it is in domain) as other computers!could you please help me!!?? Thank you. ---- Regards Mahnaz

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

on the server with the wrong time:

open a command prompt

w32tm /resync /rediscover

then check the time, if still wrong, try this:

w32tm /config /syncfromflags:DOMHIER /update

if that does not work try a manual update

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:(ipaddressof the Domain Controller)

see w32tm /? for all options

Try above solution as suggested. If that doesnt work try the below solution.
Check for pdc emulator. Check if your member PC has connectivity to the DC having pdc emulator. By default PDC Emulator should do the task of updating the time and synchronizing on every machine. Also try to see if this PC is correctly in domain or not. Check if you can logon to the domain on this machine or whether you are logged in as local machine user.

If everything is perfect try to remove this machine from domain and again bring it to the domain and restart the machine. Check if its showing the correct time after bringing it back to the domain.

If even these things dont work then you can configure time server in dhcp and update and synchronize times on every machine with dhcp time servers.

    I'd suggest using SNTP on your servers to ensure your times are synchronised.
