JSI Tip 10286. Event ID: 1202 occurs when you run a program that uses the Kerberos protocol to authenticate a user or host identity on Windows Server 2003?

When a program uses the Kerberos version 5 protocol to authenticate a user or host identity on Windows Server 2003, the System event log may record a message similar to:

Source: ClusSvc
Type: Information event
Event ID: 1202
Description: The time delta between node <Server1> and node <Server2> is <value> in 100 nanosecs.

This behavior will occur when a time-sensitive program, one that uses a time stamp, runs on the computer that uses the Kerberos protocol.

This message is informational and is only a problem if the time delta is 5 minutes or more.

Kerberos uses the SkewTime Value Name, the maximum time difference that is permitted between the client computer and the server that accepts the Kerberos protocol authentication.

NOTE: The Windows Time service will correct the time during the next polling interval.

NOTE: See Kerberos protocol registry entries and KDC configuration keys in Windows Server 2003.

NOTE: See Multicast Support Enabled for the Cluster Heartbeat.
