Summary0014281: Test time on target server before domain join and abort with warning if the time drift exceeds 1 minute.
DescriptionTime synchronicity is crucial to keeping AD connected as is DNS a test mechanism should be made to test both DNS and time before a domain join and a troubleshooting button to validate DNS and time should be included in the app to limit support tickets that arise when the customer's equipment drifts in DNS resolution or time.

The following test can be performed against the time server of the AD machine using CIFS:

net time -S server_name_or_IP

The result is automatically translated to the local time zone so it should match the 'date' command except for the timezone in the date command. For example, side by side results can be produced by the following:

net time -S && date | cut -f 1,2,3,4,6 -d ' '

abs () { [ $1 -lt 0 ] && echo $((-$1)) || echo $1; } && abs $(expr $(date -d "$(net time -S $(egrep "^password server" /etc/samba/smb.conf | awk -F" = " '{ print$2 }'))" "+%s") - $(date "+%s"))

if the result is greater then 60 then there is a problem.

There's no timezone information returned. That makes time comparisons dodgy at best. The check will still be done, but it will be non-fatal.
