Login Error: Computer clock not set correctly??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I try to log into Communicator it keeps telling me that my computer clock is not set correctly.  My clock has the correct time/day so I'm not really sure what it wants me to do.  Any suggestions?

    Have you checked the time and date on the server matches the client, if there is a 5 minute difference between the client and server I believe it will not allow you to sign in.

  • Yes,

    The clocks are the same to within 5 seconds.  The one computer that I can get to consistently log in is actually more than 8 minutes ahead of the server time and it logs in just fine.  It seems to only happen if I sign into windows as one user and then try to log in to the Communications Server as a different user...  Not sure why this is...

  • Did you check the Time zone?

  • I'm happy to do that, and yes it then enables clients to connect, however clients in different time zones with their clocks set correctly to their time zones are having access blocked with this same error. Kind of defeats the purpose of online meetings if everyone has to be in the same timezone in order to have a meeting. Is there a workaround or patch for this?

  • Did you check the time zone on your OCS server and domain controllers?  If the clients all have their time zone set correctly but the server is off, then logons will still fail.

  • Hi Vitty,

    Can you update your status? Is this still an issue? Are you able to upgrade to RTM and test it?

  • Hi!


    If you are in Brazil or any other contry that use "random" Daylight Saving, you need a patch from MS. Or you can use TZONE if your windows is 2000/xp....


    After apply the patch, the problem is solved
