How do I eliminate the 6 min difference between UTC/GMT and the time on the server.

The time on my server that syncs on the workstation's time is 6 minutes off of UTC/GMT time.  I have no time critical applications running, it's just annoying when an email is sent/received 6 minutes in the future. Any suggestions?

Do you have a single server that runs DC/Exchange and that is why your time is off?  Do you manually adjust the time and eventually it slowly erodes or is the issue that it changes back quickly?

If you have multiple DCs in your environment, query to find which one is responsible for your network time.  Use this command in the command line on one of your domain controllers:   netdom query pdc  

On that server, you can set a consistant time source with the following commands:

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:"PEERS" /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update

Please set for PEERS the time source as listed above, either with it’s ip address or DNS name. If more then one is needed separate them with a space in between and don't forget the quotes: "time.domain.com time1.domain.com"

Internet Time servers you can find here: http://www.pool.ntp.org/
