    Are you using an NTP server for both the SSL VPN or the AD server? Even with the time out of sync you can still login using the Admin username and password to the LocalDomain and check/adjust the time. Unfortunately until the time is adjusted either on the SSL VPN 200 or the AD (Which ever one is out of sync) you will not be able to login with an AD account.
