    System Time is 1 hour offset after syncing via Windows Time Servic

    One of the Windows 2003 Member Servers within our Domain is keeping its local
    System Time incorrectly. We have repeatedly set the System Time to sync via
    net time to one of the Time Servers (Domain Controllers). When we perform
    this function manually from command line using Net Time, the time syncs to
    the time server and gives us back a "successful" message. Unfortunantly, we
    see that the local System Clock stays 1 hour behind even after this Windows
    Time success sync message.
    What could be causing the Windows Server 2003 to keep its local System Time
    1 hour off, and not update its time based on time received from the Domain
    Controller?

    Did you apply all the DST patches to your servers when they came out? It
    doesn't sound like it. See http://support.microsoft.com/gp/cp_DST for more
    help.

    Hi,

    The Time Zone of this server is set to a different TZ than the DC.

    Kev, I am having the same problem as you. My server is set to the correct time zone. I have stopped the time service, unregistered and then re-registered the time service and then started the time service. I then synced the time service and it says it was successful, but alas, it is still an hour behind. This server is my backup server, and now my backups will not run as the time is off. Driving me crazy about now.

    As I asked Kev...did you install the DST patches when they were released?
