Hey Experts,

I am attempting to create a GPO under  \Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Windows Time Service\Global Configuration Settings.

That will create the following settings for me

Value name / Default value in GPEditor / Default for a DC

LargePhaseOffset / 1,280,000 / 50,000,000
SpikeWatchPeriod / 90 / 900
MaxPollInterval / 5 / 10
MinPollInterval / 10 / 6
UpdateInterval / 30,000 / 100
PhaseCorrectRate / 1 / 7

Value name / Default value in GPEditor / New recomended value for a DC

MaxPosPhaseCorrection / 54000 / 172800

MaxNegPhaseCorrection / 54000 / 172800


I am ok with creating the GPO. I assign it to a custom OU and moved my test servers into the OU. the problem is that the settings don't appear to be changing on the server that I have moved into the OU.

This is in a test environment with no other GPO's applied. I have ran gpresults to make sure it is receiving the timesync GPO that I have created. But when i look in the registry under HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Config

the settings are still the default 0xFFFFFFFF (4,294,967,295)

Am i looking in the right location to determine if the GPO has been successfully applied or not?

I was able to find the proper location for this. Because this is a GPO editing the registry the actual key is located in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\W32Time\Config
