Today is the first time in several months that I've opened up Administrative tools to view the event log.
Imagine my consternation when I saw events in the log with a time-stamp of 11/09/2012. The task-bar/control-panel date/time settings show what appears to be the correct date and time i.e. January 22, 2012 ADG 10:27 AM (GMT+0530). This is a standalone box.
The 'Internet Zone' tab in Control-panel/Date-and-time settings states 'The time has been successfully synchronized with time.nist.gov on 20/01/2012 17:05'
Most recent entry in the event log is a W32Time event time-stamped 11/09/2012 12:10:19 that states 'The time service has detected that the system time needs to be changed by -62985605 seconds. The time service will not change the system time by more than -54000 seconds. Verify that your time and time zone are correct, and that the time source time.nist.gov (ntp.m|0x1|126.96.36.199:123->188.8.131.52:123) is working properly.'
- Why is the event log time different from the system/task-bar time?
- Why is the event log report apparently in conflict with the report under Internet Zone tab in Control-panel/Date and Time settings?
