    Not sure if anyone else's WSUS server is thinking it is an hour behind?

    Ours is showing itself on the Home page as

    "Status as of Tuesday, April 04, 2006 1:35 PM"

    which is an hour behind (local time is now 2:35 PM). Also running a manual
    sync shows that it ran "an hour ago" etc.

    Tried restarting the services to fix this, and when that had no effect we
    rebooted the WSUS server. Still no effect.

    Anyone else have this issue, and if so, if you were able to fix it, how did
    that work? Thanks,

    What is the time on the server. (Not in WSUS but the servers System time. I
    think WSUS gets its time from the computer clock it is running on.
    If so change the server clock and WSUS time should follow. Mine is correct
    and so is the server time so I cannot help much,

    I failed to give complete info. The machine time is correct. We have two
    layer 2 time servers here, and are in an AD domain as well.

    The machine time was correct from the beginning. What is interesting vs.
    Gus's situation is that my sync time did Not change, but the Wsus server
    still thinks it's an hour behind.

    If you look in the system tray at the time, it will read 1:05 for instance,
    and the "current sync" will show 12:05 when finished.

    This isn't catastrophic or anything, I just found it odd.

  4. Actually.. this is a known, and reported, and unfixed issue.

    It was first observed in APRIL 2005!, during BETA testing, and, apparently,
    did not get fixed for the RTM.

    I'll bounce this issue up to the WSUS dev team.
