    Hi!
    I have a small issue, need some inputs.
    I have one DC seperate box, and 20 vmware esx virtual machines all running
    win 2003 servers on seperate esx server box.
    I have set the DC as the authoritative time server and all the win2k3 vm's
    are getting the correct time from the DC except one server(test1).
    Test1 is able to sync with the DC but its getting a time that is 1 hr less
    than the other member server and all the machines in the domain.
    I have unchecked the "sync vm with esx" checked box in the vmware tools
    option - so Iam hoping that the esx is not forcing its time onto the
    machine.
    I have also checked the DST on the win2k3 machine.

    Iam not sure if any process of script is doing this.

    Can anyone throw any light onto this issue ????? Appreciate it

    Thank you

    Might be obvious but I have to ask. Have you checked the time zone?

    Hi! Dave,
    Looks like the 955839 pach is missing for the 2 servers having the time
    issue.
    I will schedule a maintenance window, get these patches applied and will try
    again.
    Thanks a lot for your help, much appreciate it.
    Thank you

  6. Hello Ven,

    Check and compare the registry settings between the trouble dc and any of
    the other ones. Look for any differences

    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters
