Subject: W32Time Problem
Date: Thu, 7 Jul 2005 20:06:02 -0700
SBS Premium SP1 2 nics and Sonicwall TZ170 directly connected to 1 nic. ISA not installed. I’m in the process of configuring a new server for my company. I have verified the time service works on the SBS when the Sonicwall is connected to our DSL connection.
I want to finish configuring the new server and workstations without using the DSL connection because it is being used in our existing network. The time seems to work for about a half hour, then jumps back a half hour. Is there a way to make the date and time work on the Server without being connected to the internet? Also, if I put the server in production and we loose our DSL connection, this could cause alot of problems with applications that depend on the server time stamp.
