Windows Servers and PCs Daylight Savings updates – clocks 1 hour forward ?

Monday, October 27th, 2008

We’ve now had new daylight savings changes in NSW again – and many servers and workstations are out of sync again. Here are some steps that will help in getting your Windows Servers and Workstations correctly setup.

1. Download the December 2007 DST Updates from Microsoft:

2. Edit the registry settings on your PC (run regedit) – navigate to HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters, and update the following:
NTPServer – time.windows.com,0×01 time.nist.gov,0×01 my.time.server.com,0×02
TYPE – NTP

3. Do a restart on the w32time service from a command prompt:
net stop w32time
net start w32time

Hopefully then after about 30s your time should show up correct !
