Hi all,

When running SP which read data from remote server (linked server), after few minutes, I get the following error: "Failed with the following error: ERROR: SQL Network Interfaces: The clocks on the client and serevr machines are skewed".

We checked the clocks on both machines, they are both on the same domain and connected to the same DC.

Does any body have an idea?

Thanks,
Ran.

Hi Ran

Are the clocks on all machines and the DC showing the same time?

Best Regards
Chris

Thank you all, but I forgot to mention that it is not happening all the times...
So if it was regional setting, it would have occur all the time...

I agree with Syed.

The clocks on the client and server machines are skewed".

Had same issue, seems some servers were losing time sync with domain controller/s.
Affected browsing certain in-house websites, also could not logon to one server via RDP.
Once server time sync with DC's was resolved, the 'clocks skewed' error disappeared.
