hi, (i am Using windows 2008 ,windows xp and sqlserver 2005 ,2008)

i have to put some data from one sqlserver to other sqlserver instence, both are kept geographicall seprated.

so because of datetime sync problem i have made the data transfer job with out datetime dependency.

but due to some restrictions for timebeen(temporary basis), i have to compare date time
of both the servers and put some records based on datetime comparision.
both sqlserver sync data using wcf and webservices.

I wanted to know , is it possible to keep the same date time at two different geographicaly separated computers, like using timezone settings, or there will be some difference in time, like few seconds, but it matters for me.


any link will be help full.

yours sincerely
Sean Lange

Of course you can have the same time on both machines. There is nothing that says a computer must use a certain timezone because of its physical location. I suspect however that your question is deeper than that. Can you add some time adjustment to your synch process?

There is always the possibility of some amount of skew between clocks on computer systems. Will two computers stay in sync to the second over time, it depends. For most normal business requirements I am not sure why you would be concerned about two systems being that closely in sync with each other.

Cool
