Windows Daylight Savings Time Issues

P: 3
I did not see any discussions / threads for this but if there is one please let me know:

-First, I am one of only two individuals within my company's IT Dept.

-We have a Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Ed. Box for our Domain controller.

-We are having issues STILL today in April with the Microsoft Windows Daylight Savings Issues

***Symptoms:

-Windows XP PCs that are patched with the Microsoft prescribed patch 931836 are moving 2 hours ahead once in the new Daylight Savings period when the "Automatically adjust clock for daylight savings changes" is checked (1 hour ahead of what they are supposed to be at, e.g.: if the time is supposed to be 9:00 AM CDT and "Automatically adjust clock for daylight savings changes" is checked, then the time will read 10:00 AM CDT.

I am thinking the problem has to do with the PCs syncing with the domain controller or some other network device because when you take a PC off the domain and use the Internet Time tool Daylight Savings Time works like it is suppose to.

Ideas, Comments, criticisms of my intelligence are all welcome!

Thanks.

Greetings, mmuras!

You have done well and good for yourself, great job. To tell you the truth, I took my son to work with me to resolve similar issues.

You must physically go in the dropdown and choose the appropriate time zone. And if you have an 'Internet Time' tab option, this is not available right away, you must also check the box there, hit Update Now, Apply, then OK.

You may consider restarting your server, go on-line, then check you clock again see if it takes. Repeat same steps until the clock time holds.

Dokoll,

Thanks for the reply.

I am sorry to be so narrow minded but either your explanation does not work for me or I do not understand it. There is a good chance it is the latter, so if you would not mind putting your explanation into very formal step by step procedure I would be most grateful.

Thanks,

No please, quite the contrary, I could have been clearer. Let's step back a moment, have you tried restarting your server and hitting F10 during boot to change time there?

I wanted to point you to the Time Zone tab, through your digital clock, right of your screen so you can use the dropdown there to modify to the right time zone...
