A computer that is running Windows 10 Version 1511 reverts to a previous date and time

Perhaps not many people have this issue, but I would like to mention it here.

The system date and time setting on a computer that is running Windows 10 Version 1511 (build 10586.xx) incorrectly reverts to a date and time that is at least one day in the past.

If your envirment is in a private network or proxy, I suggest you run this step in your win 10 image capture process:

Net stop w32time

W32tm.exe /unregister

W32tm.exe /register

net start w32time

W32tm.exe /resync /force

How do you know you have time sync problem?

  1. After machine is installed, time in the log on screen is wrong.
  2. installation log file smsts.log, you will see the time is jumping in Data/Time column. (use cmtrace to read log files, not notepad)
  3. machine BIOS clock might changed itself.
  4. SMSTSUDAUSERS is not set
