SSH Tectia

Last Login Time is Incorrect on Windows

Symptom: After a successful user authentication, SSH Tectia Server displays the previous time when the same user logged in to this server. However, in some cases the last login time shown is incorrect.

The last login time may differ from the server's time because the timestamp comes from the domain controller (DC), not from the host where SSH Tectia Server is running. In large environments with multiple DCs, the timestamps are not replicated between DCs. Logging in using one DC will not update the timestamps shown by other DCs. The last login time may be unreliable if the time on the DCs is not set accurately.
