Preferably without needing to change user privileges.
Why are people changing the time?
thats irrelevant. but i'm curious also.
At my company, all of the machines get the time from the server. The time on the machines can be changed, but the server will change it back.
We use this in our login script
net time \\server_name /set /y
By default, only admins and power users are supposed to be able to change the system time. Are these XP Pro machines? On a domain? Are the people changing the time admins on the local machine or just users?
These systems are on Windows XP and changing the way users log in is not feasible (long story, trust me on this). I need to be able to disable changing the time even for the administrators.
Since you didn't say, I'll just guess that they're not on a domain. You can go to local security policy, local policies, user rights assignment, and find the "change system time" policy. Remove everyone from the list.
yeah that's what I was going to suggest or if trying to set the time remotely
net time \\machine /domain:insertdomainhere /set /y
but the guy above me already said how to do it
we do it with the netware client. in the advanced settings is an option "set station time" and when enabled the workstation gets its time from the server. restricted user accounts cannot alter the client properties.
