OK, here is the issue. We are runnning a Cisco 5510 ASA Version 7.1(2). The VPN CLient was working correctly until the Network engineer start updating the MS2003 AD with service pack 1 and DST patches. Now the clients can't connect and I am getting an Error on the ASA of "113020: Kerberos error?: Clock Skew with server greater than 300 seconds" The Clock on the ASA matches with the servers in the AD to the second....

The Date and Time between the ASA 5510 and the Domain COntrollers are correct....but the clients can't connect....

Here is a link to what I found on that error message:

The recommended action is to

"Synchronize the clocks on the security appliance and the Kerberos server."

However, you say you've already done this.  Have you rebooted the ASA since the DST updates took place?  Does the timezone on the ASA match the Kerberos server?

Yes, that is the weird part....The date, month, year, timezone, and clock match exactly between the ASA and the Domain Controllers....I have rebotted the ASA twice....still searching. I have even eabled NTp on the ASA, and the NTP is the Domain contoller providing time for the domain, P.C.'s.

It worked saturday at night at midnight, and once they started the Service pack upgrades and installation of the DST MS patches, BAm....VPn is done...

Yes, you will need a CCO login to download the latest code.  If you have an active SmartNet contract on the ASA then you are most certainly entitled to having a login with download rights.  If you never registered your SmartNet with the device, then you probably were not issued an account.  They will want your ASA serial number which can be obtained by issuing a "show version" command from the CLI.  You will also need your invoice...

Thanks for your help.  Of all the frantic things not to check was issuing the reload after setting the time manually and changing the time zone from command line.
