We have about 75 computers on the network, all are running windows xp sp2  the servers are MS 2000 and 2003. I applied the DST patches on servers and client computers. Unfortunately, serveral of the computers time keeps changing and workstation gets a message that the time on the machine does not match with the time on the server. Then the network disconnects from the computer. As I indicated all of the patches have been applied, any ideas?

We had some issues with a few pcs on which the time would change back.  We fixed them by doing the following:
From a login with administrative permissions:
Run TZEdit on the affected workstation(s)/server(s) and verify that the start and end dates of DST are correct for the time zone you are in.  If not, correct the dates.  Save and exit TZEdit.  Open Adjust Date/Time, click on the time zone tab, re-select your current time zone, apply, then OK.  Restart the pc, and log back in with the same admin login you used to make the changes.  They should stay from there.

apparently ther is one box that these others are syncing to that may not be applied or the "automatically adjust for time" button might not be checked.

manually set your main CD and verify patch es and configuration is correct.


set this registry key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters

ReliableTimeSource : REG_DWORD (optional)
Used to indicate that this computer has reliable time.
0 = do not mark this computer as having reliable time [default]
1 = mark this computer as having reliable time (this is only useful on a domain controller)


then go to your other computers (or via script)

net time \\computername /set /y

where computername is the name of the correctly timed server
