Hi,

I am running Windows Server 2003. How can I get the workstations (Windows 2000 and XP Pro) to synchronise at logon with the servers time? Also, are there any privileges or permissions that should be set?

Thanks

Make a logon script.

NET TIME \\serverNameHere /set /yes

Add the above to a file and rename to logon.bat - That creates a batch script that will sync the time with the server.

Place this file with the NETLOGON shared folder on your 2003 box. Now in the user profiles add a logon script and put "logon.bat" in the space.
