We're having an issue on *some* machines w/ an older version of the Novell client where it resets the year / time all wacky. All these machines have the exact same date & time (year 2146). All of them have either been SP2 or SP3 of the client & are setting the date & time through the client.

Is there any cause for this? Our sys admins have reported all servers are sync'd w/ the correct date & time.

Here's another person having the exact same problem, except last year:

XP Windows time and date problem - Windows XP Support

The fix is to just upgrade the computers to the latest, sp5 client, but I didn't know if there could be a cause for this as to why these older clients would be grabbing / thinking it's year 2146.
