Hi all,

Just ran DC promo on a new 2008 server, all seemed to go well until after reboot it seemed to be revert the date to Janury 3rd 2014? If i change it manually it just reverts. It is on a ESX host which has just been installed, but I have a feeling teh time zone maybe incorrect on that too. However I have not ticked the box on the VM to sync with host.

Anyone help?

Is the server setup to update its time via NTP? Perhaps it is grabbing the time from a device that has the wrong time?

Bring up the time settings and find the tab "Internet Time" See where it is configured to sync the time to

Did the time on the ESXi Host suddenly change? After correcting it did the server update to show the right time as well?

I've seen before where a virtual machine will update to whatever time the host has and immediately change any time I would try and correct it.

No, the ESX host hadnt been set correct. That has now been configure correctly. However the Server still remains incorrect, and reverts back if changed.

Please see the article below. You can disable the way the time is synchronized on the host if you prefer:
