: Could anyone explain me how does time stamp works in StarTeam. If people are working in two different time zones how will it effect the time stamp of a file.

Because StarTeam is a true client-server application, all repository time stamps are translated to the time zone of the StarTeam VirtualTeam Server. In this way, clients in different time zones can work on the same set of files and still maintain a valid chronology for the revisions. It is very important to keep the times on all workstations, servers, etc. accurate and preferably you should use NTP (Network Time Protocol) on your server as well as all workstations to ensure that you have the correct time. If you are running Windows 2000, the service ?Windows Time? is installed on workstations and servers, but you must set up one of your servers or workstations to be the time master that sets its clock from a well know time source on the Internet. All PC?s in your network set their clocks using this master.

If you are running Windows NT 4, you need to install ?TimeServ? which you can download from Microsoft or get from the Windows NT 4 Resource Kit.

Or do a search for ?timeserv? http:/search.support.microsoft.com/kb/c.asp?fr=0&SD=GN&LN=EN-US for all articles.
