server log times off

I noticed an odd issue on one of our servers this morning.


I was doing some Backup maintenance this morning - I created a new schedule and ran it on the server to backup the DBs hosted there.  I then noticed in the Logs that the Backup was apparently run at 4:06 PM.


That's the odd part - I'm on the west coast and my computer's clock reads about 9:50AM right now.

This server is on the east coast and it's clock reads   12:50PM right now.

How did these log entries get tagged with a time of 4:06PM, when they were run at about 12:06PM (from the server's point of view)?


The time zone for the server is correctly defined as East Coast (UTC -5).


New log entries continue to show up about 4 hours ahead of the system clock on this server.  This could make it difficult to track down issues...


This server is running 14.02 on Windows Server 2012 R2.
