SBS Server 2008 Real Time Clock running Very Slowly
Posted on 2010-11-17
Yesterday I came into the office to find all of my XP clients had the wrong time. Checked the SBS Server 2008 box and noticed that for every 10 seconds that passes in real time, the SBS clock updates by one second!!
This causes massive performance issues on the network etc.
We have AV installed on the machine, CA Threat Manager R8.1. We are currently part way through the process of deploying CA Total Defence R12 throughout the network. The R8.1 management console is installed on the SBS box but we are deploying the R12 management console on a different server.
This is the only change that we have made but I have have tried disabling all of the R8.1 services on the SBS box but with no change to the issue.
The box is covered by Dell Prosupport and they are happy that this is not a hardware issue as there is nothing in the hardware logs. The clock in the bios is running at the correct speed. The OS is also covered in the warranty but I am awaiting their call but I do not hold out much hope.
SBS is fully updated with SP 2 and any updates since.
Your help would be appreciated.
