Automatic time change in Windows Server 2012 R2

New Contributor

Hi, everyone,


Sorry for my English, I have this problem with the server, The server has the correct time zone, -04: 00 Santiago, but it automatically anticipates the minutes to fix the time, what I have done is update Windows, check the time in the BIOS, synchronize with an internet clock but still thus, it is 4 hours ahead, I cannot think of anything else to try, I have seen in other sites that this problem has been presented to other people with the same version of the server but they do not indicate a different solution to the ones I have already tried. Does anyone have any ideas that can help me please, the server is an HP Proliant DL180 G9 and the Windows is Server 2012 R2 Standard

Why is it not already running? Seems that may be at least one problem. Also post the text result of

w32tm /query /configuration





@Dave Patrick Ready I could solve it, activate the windows time service then synchronize with the time server and it has been maintained thank you very much for your help

Glad to hear, you're welcome.
