Hi:

I have one windows 2003 server that is not member of any domain. How can I set the time sychronization on the server to our internal NTP server?

Thanks

On the server open a cmd prompt.

net stop w32time
net time /setsntp:<server host or ip>  <--Default: time.windows.com,0x1
net start w32time

w32tm /resync

You will want to use the NET TIME command from the DOS or Command PROMPT.

To find out more about the NET TIME command, goto DOS and enter NET HELP TIME.

You should see a parameter /SETSNTP.

If your internal NTP Server were 10.1.1.10 the command to issue would be:

NET TIME /SETSNTP:10.1.1.10

Hope this helps.

If you go to the following Windows Article, this should walk you through the registry settings. DON'T FORGET TO BACK UP YOUR REGISTRY FIRST!
