I would like to know the best way to sync the time on my Domain Controller to an external time source.

Has anyone some advice??

You can use net time, but it's a bother.

Try looking for an application called Atomic Time. I don't have a website, but it works for Windows 2000 and it's easy to use (free also).

I've seen it on Win2K pro, but I'm told it works for Win2K Servers also.

Time Server NIST Time Synch Free !

You can use NTP:  http://www.connectotel.com/netware/timesg.html

  I use AboutTime Version 4.8 available for free download at:
               www.arachnoid.com
  Works on solo or works as time server. Win9X or NT. I have used this program and found it to be stable,   reliable, and non-intrusive to other software, at home and at work..

I hope this helps !

Here is a link that compares W32TIME and NET TIME.

It's a good easy read.

Unless you have very sensitive needs, NET TIME is probably more than enough for any server in your network, synced to a domain controller, and the domain controller synced to an internet time server.

Does anyone know of a Win2K "service" type client as opposed to one that runs when you "log-in"?
