When I run net time, it tells me the server has a current time of 12:45 and a local time of 11:45?  Why is that happening and how can I correct the current time.

If you are in North America, did you run the KB931836 daylight savings time update? It sounds like the time zone information may be wrong and someone manually changed the current time.

This is a DST issue. (Daylight Savings Time)

What OS is the server? Windows 2003, Windows 2000, Windows NT?

This site is great for getting you the correct patch and fixing the issue. If you are running Windows 2000 box, the process is a little more difficult, but can be donw.
