  • DC time out of sync

    Hey all,

    I've been struggling with this all day and I could use some help.

    I run a small network here at my house with a 2003 R2 server running Active Directory. Last night I blew the circuit in my computer lab and the server went down. When it came back up, the BIOS had reset itself and reset it's clock. Unfortunately when I got to the console I simply hit F1 to bypass and didn't bother to actually reset the clock. When the system came up the date/time in AD was different than the date/time of the local system clock. I don't run a second DC. Because the clocks are different I can't login to the DC system. There's obviously no local users on the system so I can't bypass AD to reset the local system time. All of the PCs on the network are now getting bad date/times from the DC and services are no longer functional (i.e. DNS, AD logins....etc). I've tried a bunch of different things and I can't seem to get into the DC to reset the AD date/time. Any suggestions?

    Got it fixed. For whatever reason, I never seem to think Safe Mode is going to fix anything. Well, it allowed me to get in and reset the clock. After that, everything worked fine.

      Might be an idea to replace the CMOS battery in the server.
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2
