I have a Server 2003 virtual machine that seems to be having issues with the daylight savings time.
We are central standard time.

We adjust the time on the server but it goes back an hr. It does not want to stick.
It is supposed to get the time from our NTP server.

What should I look for to rsolve this issue?

Is the server fully patched?  There have been numerous OS patches relating to the changes in when DST takes effect.

Is the server's clock set to the correct time zone?

Is the NTP server itself correct?

Make sure you are patched, but also use a third party software.  I use 1st Atomic Time this will keep your server at the correct time.  I also created a GPO so that all the computers time is set by this server too.
