    Time

    How come the Mac Book Air I'm currently setting up persists in picking up a time that's definitely the. sext part of 20 minutes on from the real time. Therefore, it won't play properly with the Windows domain through the mini Mac Server we run? Probably glaringly obvious but I can't see it for the life of me!

    time.apple.com (the default) is set to Apple Aspirational Time (AAT), which is set to where they think they are - ahead of everyone else. The solution has always been to set the time server as your network NTP server.

    I'm only half joking - my Macs never work with the default time server set.

    On the client I'm trying to set the date / time pick up to the IP address of the DC but it's greyed out?
