Synchronisation Time on Standalone Server to the Domain
Posted on 2004-09-16
Thanks for reading my problem.
I am trying to synchronise the time on a standalone Win2k server, which is in its own workgroup, to a domain.
I use the following commands:
net time /setsntp:126.96.36.199
net time /set
where 188.8.131.52 is the IP address of the domain controller. With this I get 'Could not locate a time-server.'
So instead I tried:
net time /domain:domainname
where 'domainname' is obviously the name of the domain I am trying to sync time with. With this I get 'System error 5 has occured. Access is denied'.
Any ideas how this is supposed to work? I looked on microsofts site. I found HEAPS of info, but it all told me that timesyncing from non-domain members didn't use authentication.
