Clients not Updating time after DST

Hello All

Naturally I have returned for yet another issue.  After Daylight Savings this weekend I have several machines not recognizing this change.  Although the client has the option checked to do so.  

I have a screen shot here that shows what happens when I run the various commands for updating or setting the time to what our SBS has on it.

So please see that here.  

So this says that the time on the SERVER01 is two different times. That being said, this server which is my SBS has the correct time on it.  

Can't figure out why some of these machines, virtually identical, not only don't change on their own, but if you manually change them, then they revert after a short period of time.

Any ideas?  Man I bet you gus just drool when you see me come up with another issue!

Thanks

Go to the site in http:#a35129408.  Bullet IT Professional.  Check the OSes you need to manipulate.  You should be able to download the require patches for distribution.

Alternately, you should be able to use WSUS (if you can get it working on your already troubled SBS server) or if you don't use WSUS, get each client OS to do a Windows Update and get the required patch.

They may not have the current dates for the change.  MS has been publishing DST patches for a while now.  check that you have those patches installed.

Also, you can use the tzedit tool from MS to manually adjust the dates.

Sorry so long replying....I've still got a couple of boxes that the time isn't correct on.  Although I've not been able to address them accurately.

Does anyone have any suggestions with regard to the screen shot from above as to why those times are incorrect or I should say different on the same box/  It should say GMT-5 for where I am...

Like I said, still have boxes not updating...any ideas?  I guess I'll just change the freakin' time zone till it displays the correct time!

That won't really help.  

How many boxes are working correctly and how many are failing?  Is there a point of commonality in the machine which have failed?

On a machine which is failing, from a command prompt:

net time %logonserver% /set /y


Does that change anything?

LeeTutor,

After post http:#a35129924, macwalker1 indicated that the problem went from "several" machines to just "a couple".  I would suggest that as an Answer, possibly also using http:#a35328073 as an Assist.

I apologize for having not been more attentive to this.  There's been an awful lot going on and it just got lost in the mix.  

I've not completely resolved the issue.  There's a lot that I am having to navigate.
