net time \set vs. Windows Time Service in Win 2003 and Win XP
Posted on 2006-07-19
I have a multi-part question concerning net time \set and the newer Windows Time Service.
Currently have a XP SP2 clients time synched to the Win 2003 Domain Controller Server through a one-time net time \set command.
My first question is:
Using net time \set, are the clients continously synched with the server or is the synch only happen once?
My second question is:
Through my research at Microsoft's website they want you to move away from net time \set for XP and Win 2003 in favor of Windows Time Service. Is this because net time \set doesn't work well for those OSs (because I'm having alot of trouble) and what are the plus\minus between the 2 commands?
Thank you for your time.
