  • Exchange and Domain time issues

    I have a 2003 domain and installed Exchange 2007 fresh install in this domain. I keep getting a error telling me that the time is off on the exchange server. Times on server and domain are the same.

    Unable to initialize the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service because the clocks on the client and on the server machine are skewed. This may be caused by a time change either in the client or the server machine, and may require a reboot of that machine. Other than that, verify that your domain is properly configured and is currently online.

    Re: Exchange and Domain time issues

    Are the timezones the same?
    The error isn't really something that is thrown as a false positive, so would tend to point to something being wrong. I have seen it with the date wrong as well!
