Hi all, I'm having an identical problem to the one described [a href="]here[/a]

Is there a way of forcing everybody's roaming profile to synchronise with that of the (Win Server '03) server?

I'd also appreciate a step-by-step guide to doing it too if possible as I'm still acclimatising myself to the company network and using WinServ'03. I'm offering 500 points and a grade A for the step-by-step. Ta & Cheers! :D

    You will need to do this by configuring the Windows Time service in the group policies.

    1. Click Start, click Run, type gpedit.msc, and then click OK.
    2. In the Group Policy Object Editor, expand Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand System, and then click Windows Time Service.
    3. On the right pane, double-click Global Configuration Settings.

    Select ENABLED.

    Then navigate to the Time Providers folder.

    Double click on the Enable Windows NTP client, select ENABLED

    Double click on the Configure Windows NTP Client, select ENABLED.  You can use the default Windows time service, or click on the following link for country specific time servers:

    Then you need to double click on the Enable Windows NTP Server in the Group Policy, and select ENABLED.

    This should then syncronise the time across the domain.

    Hope this helps!
