imac issues loging on to network after changing time
I've been getting complaints about the computer clocks been out by 5 minutes since we refreshed the servers. So I set our two dc to pick up the time from a time server on the net. The mac server, mac clients, and windows clients have picked up the new time automatically.
Since doing this none of the mac clients will login. If I reboot a mac the colour dot goes red then orange then eventually to green.
I try to login and the dot goes from green to orange and then the login window does the shake.
Things I have tried.
Unbind and rebind both the server and mac client
Checked to make sure time and date a synced correctly
Tested the connection between client and server
I even tried unbinding a client, deleting its account and then rebinding
any ideas, or suggestions

What we do here is sync each machine to our PDC this was done on each machine and they logon every time.
just one thing i noticed is one of our machines was set to a different time zone and it refused to log any network users on even though the time was correct.

- Rep Power
If its just one or two machines, under date & time preferences just untick the button for set time automatically then retick and it picks up correct times and log in will work.
