After re-entering the Date and Time in F10 Setup, does it revert back to the previous Date/Time after a subsequent reboot?  If so, then the blades are most likely synchronizing Date/Time with the enclosure's Integrated Administrator (IA).  This feature was implemented on the bc2000 and newer and is enabled by default.  The best practice is to set the Date/Time on the IA and allow all the blades to sync.  If the blades are in a domain, be sure to use NTP to keep the IA in sync with your DCs, which in turn will keep your blades in sync after each reboot.  Otherwise, once a blade boots, MS Time will sync the OS for you.

 

You also have the option to disable the time sync feature in the blade BIOS.  Ref. pg42: http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01391915/c01391915.pdf

 But it is better to update the enclosure firmware.
