Command Prompt reports link to time.windows.com, but still receive error messages
Posted on 2007-04-07
SBS 2003 R2 with Windows XP Pros for workstations. Following error and command prompt info:
The time provider NtpClient is configured to acquire time from one or more time sources, however none of the sources are currently accessible. No attempt to contact a source will be made for 960 minutes. NtpClient has no source of accurate time.
When I run the command: net Time /querysntip, I get back the following:
"The current SNTP value is : time.windows.com 0x1
The Windows Time server is started and is set to automatic.
Do I need UDP-123 port open?
Also, just FYI: Work stations report:
The current SNTP value is: time.nist.gov,0x1 time.windows.com,0x1
