After logging into the DLP Enforce console and error occurs indicating that a time mismatch between enforce and Detection Server exists. The error recommends automatic time synchronization. This issue affects the response rule block notifications from the Detection Server.

Code 2711 "Time mismatch between Enforce and Detection Server. It is recommended to fix the time on the Detection Server through automatic time synchronization."


There is a time difference between the DLP Enforce server and Detection Server. System clocks could be several hours apart or in a different time zone.


Check the system clocks on the DLP Enforce server and Detection Server. Verify if the system clock is synchronized between enforce and detection server. If the system clocks are not within several minutes of each other then make necessary adjustments.

If the Enforce Server is a VM, you may need to dedicate resources to the VM to give it more power like CPU time, also make sure VMware Tools are installed and running on the VM.
