I just took over this Windows 2000 Domain. The issue is related with time. All the machines on the domain are running 6 minutes ahead of the actual time. For Ex: if the actual time is 6pm, the machines will be at 6:06pm.

Any ideas to sync this to the correct time and make it stay that way?

Thanks,

Here's an explanation of the basic time service for a win 2000 domain:

This is a link to an NIST page explaining how to configure Win 2000 domain to use NIST time servers:

Set the domain controller running the PDC emulator (normally the first domain controller you set up) to sync with an external time see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/216734, all the other machines will then automatically sync with this.
