The security timestamp is invalid because its creation time is in the future – Error CRM

September 24, 2014 Leave a comment

I was getting below exception when I try to create records from my console application using CRM Organization Service.

The security timestamp is invalid because its creation time (2014-09-24T08:51:00.583Z) is in the future. Current time is 2014-09-24T08:45:58.432Z and allowed clock skew is 00:05:00].

Reason :

  • There was difference in Time settings between CRM Front end server and CRM DB Server.

Fix :

  • In our case CRM Front end server and CRM DB Server time zones were different.
  • Also sometimes check if the “Windows Time” service is running on machines. (To check go to Run -> Services.msc)
  • FYI, “Windows Time” service maintains date and time synchronization on all client and servers on the network.

Same scenario would sometimes cause below exception too

Message security verification failed
