System Time Problems Windows 2000 Server

I have a Windows 2000 Server.  Ever since we turned the clocks back last month we have had problems.  Every time we reset the system time it rolls back 1 hour.

I can set the time to 1:30 p.m. & within 15 minutes it automatically rolls back to 12:15.

I have the server set to Easter Time.  Please Help.  This is affecting every computer on my network.

Hi
Is the server set to sync with an outside time-source that's either running in a different zone or hasn't applied daylight savings time whereas you have?

Try checking the output from running this at a command prompt to query the time zone,

w32tm /tz    

You may need to set another time-server for the server to sync with. Also check for w32time logs in the event logs,

You are likely synching with some NTP server in a different time zone.

To list the current time server you are using, try:

net time /querysntp


You can change where you synch with:
net time /setsntp:time.nist.gov  (or whatever NTP server you will be synching with)

Have you checked the box for Daylight Savings Time?  It must be set the same on all your servers and workstations.
