Domain user isn't allowed to change w32time service. I'm not sure
if time server mean ntp time server ...
I have to change more settings on client side in w32time service.
(e.g. start the service ;o) )
But still if the time differ for more than X minutes/hours it fails.
So I have to add net time /set command to windows XP startup.
