  • Hi Tristan,

    This forum is to discuss the Open Specifications documentation.

    I would suggest you post your question in the following forum in order to receive more accurate assistance:

    Directory Services

    Discussion on Windows Server Active Directory services


    Just as a quick check, make sure that your client and that your server do not have a difference in time of over 5 minutes. Sometimes, the times look similar, but they are set to different time zones.

    By default, AD requires the time to be within 5 minutes but tat can be configured.

    I sure you'll find the help that you need on the forum that I'm pointing you to.

    Thanks and regards,
