Time on Windows 2000 Server

Hello,

We are having an issues with time on our server.  We keep changing the time so that is it in sync with our phone system.  Yet everyday or so it corrects itself to a ten minute difference.  Is there some kind of time synchronization service that W2k Server is looking at?  How do we stop this?

Depending on the type of server etc... and if it is not using a time service, then you may run into an issue with the System Bios. Reboot the server, go into the BIOS and see if you can set the time there. If you change the Time in windows, and it cannot update the BIOS, then the time will revert back to what the servers BIOS says it should be.

Well, if you syncronize your time with the "net time" command, using a net time server, you time would syncronize itself with this server at regular intervals..

No we do not want to sync with a Net time command.  It seems that the Server is doing it on it own.  If if is how do we stop it?

I still don't really understand.  All I want is to set my server time and not have it change.  We are not using a domain.  We have workstations that browse shares on the server but do not actally log on to it.  What I would like to set a time on the server and have it progress normally.  If I set the time to be 30 minutes in advance, I want to check the server in a week and have the server's time still be 30 minutes ahead.

Windows time service:

Maintains date and time synchronization on all clients and servers in the network. If this service is stopped, date and time synchronization will be unavailable. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.
