Thread: Server Time and Time Sync

    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.

    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
