Windows time on a 2008 r2 sp2 server

If i manually update the time on my PDC it instantly reverts back to the time before i changed it.
Why will it not keep the time i tell it? It is off about 8 minutes. faster the the official us time.
your expertise is appreciated. thanks.

For changing the time you will just need to log into whatever server you have as the PDC and fix the time there and it should roll out to the rest of the network. It will take a few minutes before all the other DCs get the time change.


You can determine which server hold this role by following these directions:

By the way, to give credit due, this .reg file was given to me from this site. I think it was dariqus who originally posted it a year or so ago.
