Last Sunday was the start of daylight savings. As of Tuesday some desktop clocks are correct while others are still off by 1 hour.  when i go to change the clock manually on the desktop, it just switches back after a while.  Any suggestions on the best way to resolve this problem. I searched Microsoft but no luck. This is also affecting the calendar appotintments in Outlook as well, jumping off their meetings.  I am running Windows Server 2003 R2 for my clock server which i believe should be my domain controller.

It looks like you may not have the August 2008 DST hotfix installed:

Make sure you double check your  DST date too. If you are in the United States the date for the next time change is November 2, 2008:

You may also want to look at this guide from microsoft:

I hope this helps. Good luck.

That patch is for all your Server 2003 and XP boxes (make sure you download the correct one for each OS).
You can get the DST dates from the link i provided above.
Good luck.

ok, so i would have to apply the patch at both locations, ok, got it, i thought if i added it to my DC, it woould reflect to my clients.  If im located in the U.S., i onyl see the option for D.C., assuming that would be the correct one, yes?

I believe the hotfix needs to be applied to every computer, not just the DC. I have let most of my computers manage their updates themselves through Windows Update and they updated without issue, but you may have some that did not do this. For the ones that did not update you will need to apply the hotfix.

Oh, also, one more thing i dont think i mentioned, her actual clock is off to her Windndows XP OS by an hour which it is behind.  Im not sure if this affects the Outlook clock and its calendar items but her appts seem to be off, would this also fix that as well or is that seperate?.
