Windows 2008 SBS computers get wrong time from domain

Hi all,

I'm installing a new 2008 SBS server and decided to start from scratch with a new domain, new users, etc. Everything is working OK except for some reason when I join a PC to the new domain it changes the PC's system clock to be 3 hours ahead.

In addition, when I connect Outlook to Exchange all incoming emails have a timestamp that's 3 hours ahead as well.

The date and time on the server itself is correct.

What can I do to correct this?

Thanks in advance for the responses!

Tom

Sounds like the TimeZone is not set correctly. Double click on the clock in the system tray - lower right corner.

Suggest checking the Time-zone on your AD server(s).

This is a really good article on how to setup ntp server:
http://defaultreasoning.wordpress.com/2009/11/16/synchronize-time-with-external-ntp-server-on-windows-server-2008-r2/

Run w32tm /resync /rediscover from that workstation.
