Hello,

I have just installed Windows Server 2003 and have noticed that the clock keeps loosing time. during a 24 hour period it will be off by 10-12 min. This machine is the PDC for my domain.

I have installed a program that is supposed to sync my clock with the NIST NTP server once per day, but the clock is still always out of sync.

I don't know if this is a known issue or if it is affecting only me.

I'm open to any ideas.

Active directory has its own timesyncing system and that is probably your problem

Remove the timesync software you installed and configure the W32Time service as follows:

NET TIME /SETSNTP:time.windows.com

Allow port 123 outbound on your firewall

run these commands:

W32TM /RESYNC /REDISCOVER
NET STOP W32TIME
NET START W32TIME

Cheers
