I'm having the hardest keeping my servers synchronized in my domain. is there a sure fire way to do this, without having to run batch commands ? what i've done is used the net time command in a batch file and scheduled it thru scheduler to keep the servers synched, this is not a solution that i want to make permenant, how can i ensure that my domain is always synchronized.

what OS's?
actually a batch file isn't a bad way to go, especially for NT/w98 boxes

We have 40,000 computers in our network (NT domains, 95/NT/2000 workstations) and they all synchronize off one main computer.

The regional domain controllers synchronize to the national controller via a scheduled AT command.  The local domain controllers synchronize to the regional servers shortly thereafter also via a scheduled AT command.  The workstations synchronize to the local servers during the execution of the login script.

Works beautifully for our organization, should work beautifully just about anywhere.
