NT Serv & 2K Workstations
I had a question brought to me in regards to a time difference between an NT Server and some 2K workstations and their audit logs. I guess the server is showing different times in the logs than the 2k workstations. I thought this could be caused by AM/PM difference, or maybe the time zone setting or maybe one has daylight savings and the other does not. However, the ensure me it is not a time issue. Does anyone have an idea of what it could be?

i have noticed that some machines keep different time than others.
could be a bad RTC on the motherboard.
i have a system at home that loses a half hour every day. go fig.
runs perfectly fine.
i suggest figuring out the difference between what the systems are saying and keeping it filed somewhere. that way you can prove that attack or whatever happened at such and such a time, but it says this time.

Here is an article that discusses how W2K gets it's time from the network
