System Time Issues

Situation

"The difference between the requested time and the current time is too large" or "Your computer clocks are not synchronized" are among the common errors Amazon S3 users face.

Cause

These errors often occur when the user computer system time is not synchronized properly. In this case, Amazon returns an error code if a request does not come in a certain time interval.

Solution

To Resolve a System Time Issue

  1. Open Control panel.
  2. Select Date and Time
  3. Click Change time zone.

  1. Set the timezone that suits your current location. In case the same timezone was set before, reset it again.
  2. In Date and Time settings, specify the correct date and time.

You can also re-synchronize net time using the following command:

w32tm /resync
