dsrepair time not in sync after daylight savings time start

After the start of daylight savings time, all NW servers in dsrepair show:

+--------+-------
Time is Time
in sync +/-
+--------+-------
No 0
No 0
No 0

So, as far as NTP is concerned, the servers have the same time, but
eDirectory thinks time is out of sync. The only way I have found to
correct this is to reboot the servers.

This is my first time with DST (Indiana). Certainly the rest of the DST
servers don't have to reboot just to be happy about the change. Any
suggestions?

All Servers:
Novell Open Enterprise Server, NetWare 6.5
Support Pack Revision 04
(C) Copyright 1983-2005 Novell Inc. All Rights Reserved. Patent Pending.
Server Version 5.70.04 August 15, 2005
Novell eDirectory Version 8.7.3.7 SMP
NDS Version 10552.79 August 9, 2005

Except for one Solaris 9, but that one never has a problem with the time.

Thanks,
Craig

Please post SYS:SYSTEM\TIMESYNC.CFG from the three
servers.

Change this to SINGLE.

Who is the source ? Another NetWare server ?
If so, what type of server is this ? REFERENCE, PRIMARY ?

Who is the source ? The REFERENCE above ?

I suggest going with the same source from above. Who is
..1.8 ?

Also, eliminate :123. I recommend going with timesync vs
ntp.

Another source ? How many different timesync sources do
you have ?
Same recommendation as above.

Ditto.

Please make all the changes I recommended within MONITOR,
Server Parameters, Time. Do not make the changes directly on
the timesync.cfg file.
