DateTime on Clock always is wrong even after setting it

    Question

  • Hello Community

        I installed Windows Server 2008 R2 but this question would
    fit any server version.

        The problem is that the DateTime is always wrong.

        Even though I set it to the correct time everytime I reboot.

        How can I make the DateTime stay correct or even boot
    up with the correct time when the server reboots?

        Thank you

  • Is the battery on your motherboard weak?  What if you set the time in the BIOS?  The time is coming from the motherboard, so you need to ensure the motherboard clock is keeping accurate time.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for the post.

    I agree with Tim. If the server running long time, you’d better to change the battery on motherboard. Besides this, there is another scenario which may cause incorrect time displayed: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2001086
