Domain Time is 4 hours behind Actual Time
Posted on 2012-09-20
We have a newly created parent/child domain infrastructure. All DCs are running Server 2008 Enterprise. We are running the servers on blades and vSphere so the actual servers are virtual. If I understand it right, all servers in the domain, sync from the domain controllers which are fed the time by the root PDC.
The root domain is run by a single dc right now and the time on the at server is exactly 4 hours off. We have the right time set on the HP Blade Chassis (no time zone settings to be found), the blades (no time zone setting to be found). When the systems comes up, it is exactly 4 hours ahead. If I change the time zone to "coordintaed universal time" it shows the right time.
Why is it that if it is set to EST time, the time is 4 hours off in windows. This is causing domain authentication issues. I should also note that the server is set to sync time with time.miscosoft.com and we also tried time.nist.gov
Any help would be appreciated.
