Windows NT Server 4.0 Date/Time Change

By dwayne.sealy@caribsurf. ·
I have noticed that over the last two days my NT4/SP4 w/Y2K hotfixes servers have been changing the date and time without warning. At around midday today one of my servers changed dates to November 16, 2000 with a time of 10:09 P.M. Quite a few ofmy users were locked out and logged off as a result.

I'm thinking it has something to do with Service Pack 4.

Any suggestions?

your assumption might be correct. I have read that for a windows NT installation to be y2k compliant it must have service pack 6a or later. I was told at my last job from MS themselves that SP4 was not y2k compliant. Has it been keeping the correct date and time since the roll over? It may also be a bios issue.

SP4 passes the requirements to Y2K compliance. SP5 and SP6 have had additional fixes added to them to handle smalled issues. The problem that you are experiencing could be from a failing CMOS battery. Utilize the Time Service fro the resource kiton one server and then synch the rest of your boxes to your time server.
