Net Time Command- Another servers name!
Posted on 2008-10-03
When I type "net time" on any of my servers, they ALL say:
The current time on Server01 is (actual time).
They all reference Server01, and not themselves with the basic "net time" command.
They all reference the same server, which is part of the domain, and an AD server, but is not the NTP server that is master for the domain. This would be the PDC emulator.
All servers know the reliable time source, and can be confirmed by typing: NET TIME /QUERYSNTP
Why are they referencing:
1. the same server
2. a server that is not themselves
3. the server that is not the PDC emulator?
Hope you can help!
