Change the CMOS battery of the mainboard, then make sure the date and time is set correctly.

You should check that the clock on the AD-server is correct and sync your linux-servers clock with NTPClient.

Check if the date and time is correct with the command "date".

The problem is that the time is too different on the servers.

If you see that the clock is wrong, do the following.
(This is based on that you have ntpclient and ntpd)

/etc/init.d/ntpd stopntpdate europe.pool.ntp.org/etc/init.d/ntpd start

Hard to say if these commands are 100% correct since you haven't mentioned what distribution you are using.

Good luck

Agree with above comments but better to synchronize your clock with the domain controller.
