Hi there, i want to set the auto time synchronize to sync the time on a number of laptops if they go wrong. simple enough to do using the 'internet time' tab in the date and time properties (all windows XP SP2 machines). I changed the server to pool.ntp.org since the default time.windows.com often times out. however while it works fine for fixing time if it is wrong, it comes back with an error if the date is wrong:
"An error occurred while Windows was synchronizing with <server>. For security reasons, Windows cannot synchronize with the server because your date does not match. Please fix the date and try again"
This seems to suggests the 'auto-correct' feature of the date and time only applies to time, but not to date?? This is kinda useless (to me anyway), i wouldnt mind so much time time being out a bit its the date i'm worried about, since i want if a CMOS battery dies, my time will keep up-to-date until i replace the battery... does anyone have an idea if i can get this to auto-sync date as well as time, or do i have to look at some third party product?
