time problem across Win servers and workstations
Posted on 2007-03-27
Time problem, network setup. Current correct time - 11:00am
2 - w2k3 - AD/DNS ( AD2 and AD3)
1 - w2k2 - AD/DNS (AD1)
Ok, everyone is suppose to retrieve time from AD2. Problem, everyone including workstations is setting AD3 as their time. If I do a net time command it comes back AD3. I do the command net time /setsntp:AD2 -- completes successful. Net time - AD3 still. However when you do net time AD3 it comes back with - current time at \\AD3 is 3/27/2007 10:00am
Local time at \\AD3 is 3/27/2007 11:00am
I can get this from any workstation or server I reset the sntp server to point o AD2 it keeps coming back, also the time is still wrong. I have installed all w2k3/XP patches for the time change in daylight and followed the directions for the reg edit change for W2K server/workstation. All the patches and regid worked.
Only 1 server keeps reporting wrong which is AD3 and only a couple of workstations keep reverting back an hour and reporting wrong.
Any ideas on what to do and how to force time sync across the domain to one server. Ideally I would like AD2 to be the time server.
