clock on WS1003
Posted on 2006-05-17
I run a windows 2003 server (sbs) from home and yesterday we had an household power failure. When I rebooted the server all is fine except that the clock periodiaclly resets itself to January 1 1999.. but the time element is being set to somethign specific... it happened at 11:30am (GMT) but the time was set to 18:15...
I've just checked the application event log and there are errors relatign to time (they've never been there before)
"Windows cannot find the machine account, The clocks on the client and server machines are skewed. ."
"Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. Check the event log for possible messages previously logged by the policy engine that describes the reason for this."
Any ideas whats going on?
At first I thought it was the PCs internal battery but if I switch it off and back on, its kept time... its only when its online that at specific times (not worked out what yet) the clock resets itself...
