Windows Time sever error 50 on Server SP2
Posted on 2008-10-26
I have set my Windows Time Service to pull time from an outside source and it has been working correctly for months. Starting a few days ago whenever it polls the extrernal source (every two hours) the following error is entered in the event log:
The time service detected a time difference of greater than 1 milliseconds for 900 seconds. The time difference might be caused by synchronization with low-accuracy time sources or by suboptimal network conditions. The time service is no longer synchronized and cannot provide the time to other clients or update the system clock. When a valid time stamp is received from a time service provider, the time service will correct itself.
I have tried changing external time servers. When I do that it can succesfuly poll it the first time, but two hours later when it polls again the same error appears. Is there a wat to change the time difference tolerated to higher then 1 millisecond?
