Network Problem: w32time cannot sync.
Posted on 2002-05-02
I find our development IIS5 keep returning old web page, even the file is updated. and I find the following warning in Event Viewer (of the IIS5 machine):
Because of repeated network problems, the time service has not been able to find a domain controller to synchronize with for a long time. To reduce network traffic, the time service will wait 960 minutes before trying again. No synchronization will take place during this interval, even if network connectivity is restored. Accumulated time errors may cause certain network operations to fail. To tell the time service that network connectivity has been restored and that it should resynchronize, execute "w32tm /s" from the command line.
This problem get fixed after rebooting PDC (NT Domain), but will come back within 24 hours.
We are using NT4 Domain, with w2k member servers.
