Sync Dominos time with Windows server time.

I sync my Windows 2003 server with a public NTP time server, and sync all my notes clients time with my Windows 2003 server. But when people create new mail from Dominos 6 on the Windows server the time does not match. How do I sync Dominos with my server time?

I would also sync the DOmino servers via NTP or to your windoes 2003 server.
Other options are to sync it  directly via NTP also

there are plenty of free Time synch programs.

Search for NISTime or similar.

I hope this helps !
I assumed the Domino server runs on that Windows 2003 server...

Yes the Domino server is on the Windows server that is being synced via NTP. I will look into the Location setting.
Also, you will need to make sure that all the clients have the same setting in their Location Doc.

I hope this helps !

sjef bosman,

Excuse me, I do note use Notes much. How do I open the Server document in the NAB. Is this at the server in the server administration?
Yes indeed (but it can also be done using the Notes client). In the Admin client, click on the Configuration tab, and make sure you have the right server open. If not, click on File/Open Server and get the server you want. Then expand the first line at the left with Server, you'll see the Current Server Document. Click it. If you scroll to the bottom you'll see Server Location Information, that needs to be expanded as well. What does it say under Additional Info?

I checked and it does say "This server is using the OS's time zone and daylight saving time rules." Am I to expect that Dominos with be in sync with the sever time?
Yes indeed :|

By the way, when using a database on a server: a view displays times using the server's time, whilst an opened document in a form is processed locally and therefore displays according to the local time.

I think my main issue was the server not being in sync with GMT, the clients not being in sync with the server, and users seeing the time difference. But I needed to be sure that my database was referencing the correct time source.

Thanks
