make sure your w32time service is pointed at the pdc emulator

then roll the service

afterwards check your event logs to see if it picking up the correct time again

HI abhaigh:

What do you mean by PDC emulator?
Please help i'm new in this area.
the domain controller that holds the pdc role is the pdc emulator and responsible for setting the time in the domain

you find out that information in ADUC - right click on the domain - operations masters - PDC
What is operation master.....could please describe properly.

I dont see anything that says  (operations masters - PDC) when i right click on right click on the domain (Win 2000 server).


you need to use Active Directory Users and Computers to access the Ops Masters
thats what i'm saying ...here is the screenshot.

where do you see operations masters - PDC) when i right click on right click on the domain (Win 2000 server).

you are looking in the wrong place

that is your domain contollers OU, not the domain itself

right click on braondonthomasltd.com instead
OK OK ....i got it....i see that on exchange server (Windows 2003).....my bad ...

now what should i do to match the Domain (windows 2000) and exchange (windows 2003) time?
OK I right clicked on brandonthoms.com and i see the Operation master is there ? but now what?

u mean i need to do regedit on EXCHANGE (win 2003) OR DOMAIN (win 2000)?
the exchange box of course - that's the one with the time issue

as it is, the pdc should be pointing upstrteam to a public time provider in order to get its time information correctly (defaults to time.windows.com,0x1)
