  • date and time wrong when separated from domain

    I have server which I have taken out from domain. Until then there were no problem with data and time. I have manually configured date, time and time zone (was OK), and press update for synchronisation.

    However, when I restart the server the server showed 19 Auguts 2009? The same thing happened again.


    I do not think that problem is due to CMOS battery because the server is not so old.

    Is there some procedure for adjusting the time for non domain servers?

      To adjust time on any machine, use the net time command
      You can synchronise with a local clock source or onto the internet

      Make it a scheduled task, say once a day.

        I've also seen batteries fail after 12 months so don't discount that.

        Check the time in the BIOS and set as it should be if incorrect. Power off the system and remove power from the machine and it shoud keep time using the CMOS battery. This is not full proof though.
