Event ID 1, time is getting reset

I have a log posting about every ten seconds that something has updated the time on my server.

Windows Time service is running, but I think someone used the command line to set an NTP server or something.

OR, the ESXi host is updating the time for me.  Either way, i have thousands of entries about my time being reset and I need to clear it up.

I turned on advanced logging and I see lots of this:
will be made for 1 minutes. NTPCLIENT HAS NO SOURCE OF ACCURATE TIME.

Hi,

By any chance is this server a Domain Controller holding PDC Emulator role, if so, then you will have to configure this PDC Emulator to sync its time from a Hardware Time Server Device or from time.windows.com and advertise itself as a time source for the domain. Please refer following article on how to do this.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd723673(v=ws.10).aspx

If this is a member server, then you could execute the following command to configure it to sync time with PDC Emulator for the domain.

w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update
