Why did I get the message "Kerberos error: Time is out of bounds" when changing my passphrase?

This error means that the host system's clock has drifted more than five minutes from the Kerberos server's clock. (The Kerberos server is where your Network ID username and passphrase are stored.) Report this problem to UITS as soon as possible.
