Dear Microsoft Team,

before 3 month I was using Server 2008 R2, It was running perfectly since last 5 year but before 3 month when I Installed 2012 R2 , I facing a problem from day 1 that its time get automatically changed to previous 5 to 12 hour after every time I corrected manually or with help of Internet Time. So kindly please help me to resolve this Time auto change Error as soon As possible.

Thank you.

    Without internet or some other local time source the Windows Time service is not needed.
    w32tm /unregister
    net stop w32time
    will remove it.

    changed to previous 5 to 12 hour after every time

    Not sure what this means but might try using a different time source.

    w32tm /unregister
    net stop w32time
    w32tm /register
    net start w32time
    w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:<ntp ip address> /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update
    net stop w32time
    net start w32time
    then check
    w32tm /query /source
    w32tm /query /configuration

    Many can be found here.

    Also check the time zone settings are correct for your location and filter the system event log for Source == Time-Service and check for clues.

    Thanks for your valuable information.

    after using your command lines Two time, my Time Source is changed from Time.windows.com -IP address to Local COMS clock..
    I hope it will work perfectly now. but I have a doubt

    in bellow command line, If do not have any local NTP server and We use this server in local only without any internet then which IP address / what we have to write there so that server can work with proper time without any internet locally .

    w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:<ntp ip address> /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update

    now status is like
