Time Sync off in windows server 2008

I'm having issues with the time server now - DC time is correct however my workstation all running windows XP - are 2 hours ahead.

There are many articles on setting up NTP and that requires registry modification - is the only solution to this is by modifying the registry??

Please Advice.

Make sure your clients and the server are set to the correct timezone

All are correct - and when I try to change the time manually on the workstations they revert back 2 hours ahead.

DC is correct time as well - I'm using EBS my exchange and security server are also correct.

How can I force time update from Microsoft website - it seams my DC has the correct time but my security server and exchange are 2 hours ahead now.
If all time zones are set correctly and you have all the windows update applied in case of local time zone changes, id double check what time source you are using on whichever of your dc's is emulating the pdc

Run "net time /querysntp" to see where its pointing to, you can do the same on any machine. Domain pcs should automatically point to your dc's for their time. If the point to your pdc for yime you could run net time /set to force it. But id double check the event logs on the pdc to make sure it is advertising the time service properly. Hope this helps
