We are running Exchange server 2003 in an AD environment at our organization with outlook XP/2003 as a client. And my client is running exchange 2000 with post SP3 rollup patch installed. Problem is When we schedule meetings with them the outlook scheduler books appointments an hour early on their side. But when they book appointments with us from their side it works fine. Please help as this causes confusion between me and the client.

Someone's Time Clock is not checked to "Automatically Adjust Clock for Daylight Savings Changes"
D-click the clock in the System Tray> TimeZone Tab> check box on bottom > Apply.  :-)

There is no check box under the Timezone Tab, I'm running exchange 2003 on a Windows 2003 server, please assist if there's anything else I need to do to see the check box.

Their time will most likely be correct...don't just ask them is it 2:00pm on your server? have them make sure "Adjust Clock for Daylight Savings Changes" is checked.

Also, each PC will set this wrong if it is not set to "Adjust Clock for Daylight Savings Changes"

I am not sure if this will help but I have learnt that we do not use daylight Savings Changes in the Country, so although I do no see the check box for that, it would also  not help me if I had to check the box. Do you have any other suggestions ?

For 6 months of the year you may be on different clocks!  Do you both not use daylight Savings Changes in the Country? (What Country?)

Look in the Control Panel for a Date and Time Icon...

Windows will not show you the "Adjust Clock for Daylight Savings Changes" checkbox if your Time Zone dosn't use Daylight Savings! (Adjust it to Pacific Time and it will appear)

Did you check their Clock and "Adjust Clock for Daylight Savings Changes" info?  I think this is where it might be set wrong.

Harare-Pretoria (GMT +2:00) does not have daylight savings, but other time zones nearby do.  I'd guess one client is set to Sarajevo (GMT +1:00) w/ daylight saving checked...thereby displaying the correct time on the PC but causing a one hour adjustment to the non-daylight savings time configured Exchange server.   If you have psexec installed from www.sysinternals.com, you can do a 'ps exec <computername> w32tm /tz' to check the timezones currently configured on the machines without physically going to them.  Start with the servers just to double/triple check they're right, then start hitting the clients.  (Other tools on sysinternals can get you a list of computernames if you don't have that handy...not sure how large of an operation you have there.)

There is also an Exchange 2000 with SP3 in our organization that runs public folders for our timesheets application but this server does not send/receive mails so maybe the problem is with this server. Microsfot advises that I install the post SP3 rollup patch on this server and see what happens.I'll post the  results here....

I tested with OWA and this problem does not occur. I think the problem might be with the outlook clients on both domains or what do you say...?

Yes...somewhere there is a machine with a bad clock setting.  I get this call every few months or so.  Sometime it's on the server and sometimes it's on one of the clients.  You will have to hunt it down.
