I am having trouble determining which time protocol my server (windows 2003 server) is currently running.  Does anyone know how I can determine this?30

I believe I want to use SNTP.  I do not have a need for an accurate time source and I plan to mark my domain controller as a reliable time source.

How about going into REGEDIT:

HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\System\Current Control Set\Services\W32Time\Paramters\

"ReliableTimeSource" value is set to 1 if your machine is a reliable time source, 0 otherwise.
"LocalNTP" value set to 1 to start local SNTP time server automatically.
"Type" value is Nt5DS for synch time according to domain hierarchy, NTP value for manually configured.
"NtpServer" value can be set to the DNS or IP address of an external time source.

If that doesn't help, just hit the microsoft web site on their "Windows Time Service" whitepaper. You can pick out what you don't need.

I have verified and/or added those reg keys with the exception of localNTP value.  Would this mean I am running NTP?

I have also read the 'The Windows Time Service' white paper and did not find a solution to fix my particular problem.

I keep getting messages about not being able to connect to the domain controller.  I have been able to successfully communicate with the server.  The only network device between the server and workstations is a switch.

I am starting to think my w32time errors are a reslut of something else.  This is begining to look like a networking issue.

Any thoughts?
