Can someone tell my how to correctly set the Windows2000 DC to pull time from an external time souce.  My environment is as follows;   6 Windows 2000 DC with 50 Windows PRO XP workstations.  

Do I just need to type: net time /setsntp:(timesource) on any DC or  does it need to be run on a certain DC?
How do I add a backup time source?

Thanks,  J

You want to set it on the PDC Master, I believe.

For multiple time sources, specify multiple time sources.  For more info, type NET TIME /? at a command prompt.
