i've got multiple win2k servers. I've got 1 of them that syncs the time to a public time server. Now, I wanted the other servers to sync the time also to that win2k server that contacts the public time server.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks.

There are several protocols and applications that do time synchronizations. Win2K itself in its Resource Kit have a time service (cmiiw). Still the easiest way to do this for me is to use NET TIME command in a batch file and schedule it to be run at certain periodic interval.

synctime.bat
@NET TIME \\win2K_time_server_name /SET /YES

Open the Task Scheduler in each of w2k servers and create a scheduled task to run this batch file periodically.

You can also use AT command to do task scheduling.

 If your server configured for the public sntp server is a DC,  any other machines be it servers or workstations that are members of that domain will automatically sync their time periodically.   A quick test would be to change the time on 1 of the servers and then stop and restart the w32time service.  The time should then sync right up again.  If it is not a DC, there is no automatic time sync other than manually running net time \\servername /set /y  or some other 3rd party time program.   You can use the task scheduler to periodically run it as well.

You can also modifie the regestry keys to point to the correct server...  I've done this on my domain, with a NT4 Server that is not a PDC or BDC, just a stand alone server.  Setting the good values on the Win2k Pro machines and other servers to point to this server works fine...
