Sorry if i am repeating a question but i have looked with no joy. my problem is

I am running Vista. if i open a command prompt and type
NET TIME \\DOMAINCONTROLLER /set /yes
i get the error "A Required Privilege is not held by the client"

if i right click "CMD.EXE" and select "Run as Administrator" then the NET TIME function works.

i have the NET TIME function running in my domain logon script but it fails.

Does anyone know how to get around this without turning off UAC?

thanks

Ady

Domain clients will synchronize with the domain on their own.  It is not necessary to use net time.

does this need to be set in the domain GPO?

Unless you set something in the policy that causes it to NOT sync, all domain clients will sync to the domain automatically.
