1 Event from Data Source discarded for being too far in the future

Does anyone know how to locate which event is being discarded for being too far in the future by a day? The actual error is "Events retrieved from [DATA SOURCE] discarded (1 more than one day in the future)".I've been looking through the configuration and guides to look for some help to identify this one event that seems to occur every day at a random time. The data source in particular is always sending DNS query logs, so I know the timestamp on the packets is correct which is why this doesn't make sense.

Re: 1 Event from Data Source discarded for being too far in the future

Hi

Before Checking the Data Sources 

please duoble check the Time on your ESM and Receiver.

is it connected to a NTP server?

is it communicating good or the query is reject?!

Best regards.

There is nothing wrong with the timestamps or times on the devices. This has already been confirmed as 99% of the data has the correct timestamp.
