We have around 20 R410 servers that are all gaining time. Within 1 minute it gains 1 second with another minute gaines another second.

When it sync's with NTP source the time corrects it's self and then starts running fast again.

Some of these servers are part of a domain and some are part of a work group, but we see the same issue with all of them

Any idea's suggestions will be much appreciated.

Wow, that sounds like the timing is off on the internal clock's firmware.  Have you tried to update the BIOS and see if that maybe corrects the issue?

resolved, was a java process causing the drift. Terminated and disabled service, drift has stopped.
