I just noticed that the SBS server clock is slower then any of our cellphone clock. We initially configured the clock using the atomic time, which I would imagine the cell phone use. However there is a 4 minute difference.

How could this happen? and how to fix this?

which version of SBS
how old is the box running sbs
sometimes older server/PCs can loss time
there is a battery on the motherboard
you can adjust the time by clicking on the time in the lower right corner....if you have the correct level of permissions
it's rather easy

Cellphone clock is somewhat entered by users, not necessary sync with any world clock.

As Darin said adjust the time tonight and check again in a few days time. Atomic time has a function to sync with world clock everyday (or any interval of your choice?)

OK Darin I changed the system clock on the server and then rebooted the client PC and it looked like that did the trick. Im still trying to figure out how it lost time. I know the attached articles are good however it just doesn;t make any sense as to why it would change.
