Server Time and Time Sync

The core first. I had one server which acted as a DC and also run some Web
Application. Now we have installed a second Server (2008) and made it as a
DC, AD, File, DNS. The old server we have demoted and it is now a member of
the new Domain.

My problem is that all the workstation still get syncronized with the time
from the old server, which as such is not much of a problem for me. However,
the time and Date on the old server is wrong and as soon as I change the
date, within a short while it sets itself back to the wrong time and date.

Long story short, here my question. Either how can I correct the time and
date on the old server that it stays and the workstations also get the right
time and date or, what I think I would prefer more is how to disable the time
sync on the old server and set the sync from the new server, incl. the old
server is then sync from the new one.

Thank you.

Re: Server Time and Time Sync

Hello Somchai,

Make sure that the time zone settings are correct. Also configure the new
DC, which should have the PDCEmulator role, to an external time source.

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:peers /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update

With "peers" you can set the time source, either DNS name (time.windows.com)
or an ip address from a reliable time source.

Here you can find some of them:
http://www.pool.ntp.org/

On the other server run this:

w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update

After that run:
net stop w32time
net start w32time


Best regards
