My boss has told me that last year some of the servers didnt adjust correctly to the time change. Does anyone know how I can go around (or mstsc) into the systems and make sure they're configured correctly for this?

This concerns WinXP, Win2000, and Win2k3.

There should just be a checkbox in the Date/Tiem settings that says: "Automatically adjust for daylight savings time". If that's checked it should go. I've never had one not....

configur the main server and add a line to your startup script for each user that goes:
net time \\server_name /set /yes

Gotta get that timezone right first otherwise this just very efficiently sets the clock wrong.

This sounds like the easiest option. I actually knew of this, but I was wondering if there was another option somewhere.

AFAIK, NTP only gets you set up for GMT time - time zones & daylight savings time has to be set some other way.
