Can remote desktop session change a server's time upon login?
Posted on 2010-09-01
I am troubleshooting a unusual time problem on the server clock.
The server is running Windows 2008 on VMWare ESXi 3.5. occassionally the server time would change by falling back two hours. On the VMWare tools, I have disable the time sync between the hardware and the OS (for some reason enabling the sync does not solve the issue but instead causes the hardware clock to be wrong too).
The server is already pointed to a NTP server but still the problem persist.
I have also added scripts to force a time sync with the ntp server every morning.
I am suspecting it is because a authorized roaming consultant is logging in using Remote Desktop and that may have caused the server clock to change.
I ahev an Active Directory, DNS and SNTP servers in my LAN. Any suggestions?
