Hello Experts -
Wondering if someone could offer a few hints and tips here please.
Looking to sync time on about 21 Windows Server 2003 boxes. An application newly installed, with SQL Backend Clusters and Front-End Web Servers, requires all servers in the mix to all have same time, room for deviation is less than 1 minute.
Any body got any tips on how to setup and monitor the situation with time on all servers.
Also wondering why Active Directory is not enough to keep servers in sync.
I've created a batch file to run on each server with the following commands:
w32tm /config /update /manualpeerlist:10.101.82.1 /syncfromflags:MANUAL
net stop w32time
net start w32time
However, need a way to monitor and report on the time of each server and show the differences if any over say a one month period.
At the moment, under Active Directory, after 1-2 weeks, the servers will slowly go over 2 minutes differences from each other.
Any help very appreciated.
