I want to configure a GPO so that will set the time on all of our workstations.

I want to configure a GPO so that all the times on all of our computers will be the same and I can change the time on all the computers if needed.

Note: All of our servers are Server 2003 and all of our computers are running XP Pro.

Thank you,
DSterling

By default all of the computers in an Active Directory Domain sync their time with the Domain Controller.   Are you in a Active Directory environment?

Otherwise you could write a logon script to send the "net time" command.  Type "net time /?" for all available options.

Hope this along with the post above helps.

You can set global policy with:

gpedit.msc
Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>System>Windows Time Service. There is also a subtemplate for Time Providers to set synchronization policies.

Hope I'm not barking up the wrong tree.
