PDC Emulator has changed, but member servers are still syncing from old PDC emulator?
Posted on 2007-07-30
Our single domain environment consists of 5 DC's at the moment. 3 of the DC's are soon to be phased out and I've already made one of the new DC's the PDU emulator. Here are the hostnames so you don't get confused:
admin001 (former PDC)
bos-dc01 (new PDC)
As I understand it, members server should all sync time from bos-dc01, but when I open a command prompt and type 'net time /domain' it returns:
>Current time at \\admin001 is 7/30/2007 1:33 PM
>The command completed successfully.
The strange thing is, some of the servers seem to return bos-dc01 (which is good) but others are returning admin002, admin001, bos-dc02. It's pretty random.
No NTP server has been setup. We've just been using the PDC to sync time to all member servers.
Any help is appreciated!
