Time on my Domain Controller goes 10 minutes fast

I'm having to change the time on our DC manually, every few days. It's a Windows Server 2008 and no VM. It's affecting client machines.

Set it to an external NTP server, eg time.microsoft.com.
You can use this in command line:
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:time.microsoft.com /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update

That, or the battery needs changing.
What are you using for a time server?  For Microsofts list of time servers see:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/262680
Use the second Fix It on this page or follow the fix it myself under Configuring the Windows Time service to use an external time source

Note that time.microsoft.com is not a valid time server. It's just an example.

I used the following command:
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:pool.ntp.org /reliable:no /update

My domain time has been correct since yesterday afternoon. Thanks for all your posts.
