Logged into 2003 server as admin and I can't change the date/time

Logged into 2003 server as admin and I can't change the date/time. I get the message that I don't have proper privilege....I'm logged in as administrator. When I look at the windows time in my services it says only local account has rights?? How can I add admin? Adding a new user is grayed out.

It's probably controlled by a default domain GPO.

Is this server a member of a domain?  Are you logging in as the domain administrator?

Right Click My Computer, select manage.

Expand Local Users and Groups, click groups, then double-click Administrators

do you see "DOMAINNAME\Domain Admins"  listed in there?  (Where DOMAINNAME == your domain)

just as additional information.

By default the domain controller will have synchronization flags that make all clients point to it for their time. By having a defualt domain GPO, you are also telling the server to synch with itself, and you may experience time errors just on the server. If it were me, I would not create a GPO for time synchronization. If I did, create a time GPO, I wouldn't include the domain controllers.

If you remove the GPO, there is a little program called Symmtime that will synch your domain controller to an outside time server. Then, your clients will synch up to your DC for their time by default.
