Server 2003 Loses Date/Time
Posted on 2009-04-23
I have a Windows Server 2003 Std machine that is losing time. Actually, it seems like it may just jump to a time. I worked on it yesterday and followed a MS paper that had me change settings in the registry. It is set to update the time/date every 15 minutes from one of the gov time servers. I watched it work all day yesterday and it was updating when I left work at 5 pm or so. I left the machine running all night, looked at it this morning, and it had yesterday's date and 2:34 pm for the time. Since it was the wrong date and more than an hour off, I had to manually change the time/date. Right now it appears to be getting updates every 15 mins again.
I don't understand what could be happening.
