10.4: Automatic time resync after Boot Camp usage
Authored by: apfhex on May 08, '07 07:25:22PM

This is a question about incorrect time settings in OS X after having been in Windows, yeah? So far my Mac always has the correct time when I boot OS X because it syncs with the network time servers immediately after login (I assume — there's no clock on the login screen)... I guess this question would then be for people who don't have always-on internet, or don't want to sync with Apple's time servers, or need the time to be corrected before login?

10.4: Automatic time resync after Boot Camp usage
Authored by: BC_ME on May 08, '07 07:52:02PM

Exactly. Kerberos logins require no more than a 5 minute tme difference between client machine and authenticating server so a time sync is almost required before login in this situation. As a side note, there is a clock on the loginwindow in 10.4. Just click on the Computer Name a few times, it will cycle throug serial number, OS version, Date and time and some other things.
