Ok we were having issues with time accross our network, I went in and changed the external ntp server.  And now we aren't the 5 minutes off we were.  But now we are one hour ahead and I'm not sure.  The server is a 2003 standard.

But when I turn off DST on a server(non PDC) or PC the time displays correctly.

What did I do to cause this?

Everything across the network is looking to the correct server and when I was going thru the settings and changed the NTP server.  YES I did chose a NTP Server on my time zone.

But again if I turn of DST the time shows correct.

Help.

When you get a DST error it's often the client. Uncheck DST, click Apply, check DST and click Apply again.
If the time is off at the server as well - try doing the same there.

(You don't nedd to chose a server from you zone.)

Yep thats what I was refering too, I can uncheck them and the time is right but that means I have to go to each pc to do this.

Another option?

You shouldn't uncheck DST (you want it) BUT what happeds if you uncheck (and apply) and then recheck (and apply) it on a client? Do you get the correct time with DST enabled?

In that case it's an error on the clients and you have to do it on each pc. I have noticed this error on older recovery disks (depending if you install it during DST or not).
