net time returns a DC in an alternate site that's not the PDC Emulator
Posted on 2004-08-31
Why does the "net time" command run on an XP or W2K workstation (that are joined to a W2K native mode AD) return a domain controller in another site that does not hold the PDC Emulator role ?
The XP workstation, W2K workstation and the PDC Emulator are in different subnets bound to the same site.
Also, W2K domain controllers in a third site also return the same value.
It seems to me, these machines should be returning the value of the PDC Emulator for the domain.
