Windows XP clients not synchronizing time with Windows 2003 server
Posted on 2005-03-17
I have a network with a single windows 2003 server which is the domain controller. I don't know if that makes it a PDCEmulator or not. All client PC's in the windows domain are Windows XP service pack 2.
The client PC's are not synching time from the server.
The domain controller can reach the internet, can resolve time.windows.com, can pass traffic through port 123, runs dcdiag without any error. The domain controller was setup to use time.windows.com as the time source.
I log onto a client XP PC as the local client administator and try the command w32tm /resynch / rediscover
and get a 'no time data available' error
I tried w32tm / monitor on a client PC and tried w32tm /monitor and get a GETDCLIST failure error
I tried w32tm /monitor/domain:(my domain name) and it returns
the name of the windows server and it's IP address
ICMP 0ms delay
NTP 0S offset from the server
REFID: 'LOCAL' [188.8.131.52]
