system error 1314 / a required privilege is not held by the client / net time \\server /set


  • Hi

    Windows 8 Pro integrated into a domain. We have a software that uses a kind of "net time \\server /set" to sync the time.

    Everytime it starts on this machine it produces an error "a required privilege is not held by the client" "system error 1314"

    We gave the everyone group and also local service account over the Default Domain Policy already the rights to change the system clock. But this error still remains. Windows 7 machines in this domain a working without this error.

    Any ideas wht to change on this windows 8 machine?

    thx Sven

  • Hi,

    It should be a permission issue. Please right click the software and run as Administrator for a test.
