We just had a wierd thing happen... our server which has SQL 2005 suddenly jumped ahead to November 30th all by itself, and our other server stayed on November 30th. At that point, our app which uses the SQL server couldn't function. What could cause a machine to all of a sudden jump ahead by that much?

Yes, one jumped ahead, other stayed correct. Again, both are running W2003 server.

Oops, yes, typo, duh. One jumped ahead to November 30th, one stayed correct at October 30th. Sorry.

Is this updated applied to your servers?

What version (r2 or standard) & service pack level are they?

I know that update is just for DST, but I have read other places it can correct other time skew issues.

The one that jumped ahead is R2 Standard SP 2, the one that stayed correct is just Standard, SP 2.

Hmm, I am not sure. Perhaps someone else can weigh in on this issue. Does it happen again if you set it back?

In the absence of any solution, I turned off the Windows time service. I will manually deal with the time issue on all three servers.
