I just raised my domain fuinction level to windows 2003 native. I have two DC's and I assume DC1 is still the fsmo owner and possibly the PDCE. I ran the command on DC 1 to sync with microsofts time but what should I do about DC2? I am getting the folliwng error messages on DC2:
Time Provider NtpClient: No valid response has been received from domain controller dc1.domain.local after 8 attempts to contact it. This domain controller will be discarded as a time source and NtpClient will attempt to discover a new domain controller from which to synchronize.
The time provider NtpClient is configured to acquire time from one or more time sources, however none of the sources are currently accessible. No attempt to contact a source will be made for 15 minutes. NtpClient has no source of accurate time.
The time provider NtpClient cannot reach or is currently receiving invalid time data from dc1.domain.local (ntp.d|188.8.131.52:123->184.108.40.206:123).
The time service detected a time difference of greater than 5000 milliseconds for 900 seconds. The time difference might be caused by synchronization with low-accuracy time sources or by suboptimal network conditions. The time service is no longer synchronized and cannot provide the time to other clients or update the system clock. When a valid time stamp is received from a time service provider, the time service will correct itself.
Should DC2 sync with DC1 or should DC2 also sync to an external time source? Thanks.
