Troubleshooting offline clients after daylight saving changes

From SIMboxWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The client is offline with an error specifying that "the time and date are not synchronized between the client and the server". You investigate and find that the time seems to be correct on both client and server machines. You should verify that the ‘Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes’ option is checked in the Properties of the date/time on both client and server machines.

From the Windows Control Panel, click on ‘Date and Time’ and go to the ‘Time Zone’ tab. Make sure that ‘Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes’ is checked.
