Have anyone experience a sudden change of system time to year 2010? One of our NT server running NT4 SP4 encounter this problem? Is it a bug of NT4.0? We've checked with our people, nobody changed it.

did it reboot?

You could have a bad CMOS battery.

I had a server do that the other day, it reset to 1901

some server model/ operating combinations are known to have problems witht this

the answer : have the server regulary synchronize its self with an external atomic clock..

lot's of isp have one, there are many applications that do this..

Use the naval observatory and ntp to do so.  You can use the free microsoft util timeserv to receive, and even serve ntp.  If the clock is really bad off, you can have the server check up to every 10 minutes.
