The Time keeps on switching back to GMT

Hi,

One of our servers keeps on changing the time back to GMT, when we click on the update button it sorts itself out and goes to BST - what it should be. Any ideas what could be causing it to keep flicking back to GMT?

Thanks,

its probably pulling time from one of the DCs, make sure your DCs have the correct time zone.  Do you have one Dc that gets external time and everything syncs to it?

To sync to a particular DC run this from run command, net time \\domaincontroller /set /y

You can also set this up on each server as a scheduled event by using the scheduling service

Hi,

Thanks for your quick reply but the server is in a workgroup - not a domain.

Hi,

We believe we have found the issue - it was to do with the mail server program syncing the clock incorrectly. I will post back if the issue continues.

Thanks,

Heh, I was about to post that you could sync you server to an external time source:

Which may be something you can do anyways....
