"Remote Desktop cannot verify the identity of the remote computer because there is a time or date difference..." error

RTM2007 used Ask the Experts™
Running into this error on a few Windows 2008 R2 servers, which we verified has nothing to do with the time/date being wrong.

Searching the forums and tried the various fixes with time/date/NTP/DNS but none work. Restarting the server does, not ideal.
