"The current time on the computer and the current time on the network are different"

I get this message on several computers when they try to log onto the local domain.

The times on the computers and servers are correct.
Both the computer and Win2003 server have the windows updates.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

I don't have DST where I live, so I'm hardly expert on it. But the MS folks on this Forum are saying that, on the client PC, you should log in with Local Administrator rights and change the Time Zone to something else. And then change it back again to your correct time zone. Apparently the DST client patch doesn't always work without some help.

Then, you are likely going to have to manually change the time on the client PC to the correct time. Hopefully, that will allow communications to the Server and everything will synch back up.

Or you could try this from a command prompt:

NET TIME /SETSNTP:SERVERNAME

Enter your domain controller in place of "servername"
