Change time server to another (No internet connection)
Posted on 2006-04-21
I have an internal closed network with a DC (lets call this one 'PRIMSERV') acting as time server for a few linux servers. This network will never get a connection "to the outside world" and therefor I cannot use any of the known stratum 1 servers. To resolve this issue I recently added another Windows Server 2003 connected to a GPS unit. (We'll call this one 'SECSERV')
Question is: How do I change the time service to the new server?
I have tried to activate the time service on the new server through gpedit.msc, but PRIMSERV (which is also holds the AD) does not synchronize to SECSRV. Not even with 'net time /setsntp:PRIMSERV' or 'net time PRIMSERV /set /y'
