  • Time Events on SBS 2008

    I am having some strange behavior on my SBS 2008 Standard machine. About every 30 to 45 minutes or so I get the following w32time events. I have switched the time server several times without success. I have also unregistered the service completely and re-registered it with the same outcome:

    Log Name: System
    Source: W32Time
    Date: 8/10/2009 1:30:24 PM
    Event ID: 142
    Task Category: None
    Level: Warning
    Keywords: Classic
    User: N/A
    Computer: SERVER.MYDOMAIN.local
    Description: The time service has stopped advertising as a time source because the local clock is not synchronized.

    Log Name: System
    Source: W32Time
    Date: 8/10/2009 1:30:24 PM
    Event ID: 50
    Task Category: None
    Level: Warning
    Keywords: Classic
    User: N/A
    Computer: SERVER.MYDOMAIN.local
    Description: The time service detected a time difference of greater than 5000 milliseconds for 900 seconds. The time difference might be caused by synchronization with low-accuracy time sources or by suboptimal network conditions. The time service is no longer synchronized and cannot provide the time to other clients or update the system clock. When a valid time stamp is received from a time service provider, the time service will correct itself.

    AND THEN, TYPICALLY WITHIN 2 MINUTES OF THE PREVIOUS EVENT I SEE:

    Log Name: System
    Source: W32Time
    Date: 8/10/2009 1:32:20 PM
    Event ID: 139
    Task Category: None
    Level: Information
    Keywords: Classic
    User: N/A
    Computer: SERVER.MYDOMAIN.local
    Description: The time service has started advertising as a time source.

    It does appear that the time service starts advertising almost immediately after it stops, so I believe my clients will be okay (Kerberos), but any idea why this is happening? Need I worry about it? As I previously stated, these events (usually all three very close together) occur every half hour or so on my server. Please advise and thanks in advance!

      Are you syncing with an external time source? If so, which?
