Running Windows 2000 member server on an Small Business Server 2003 network.

All pcs EXCEPT the Win2K server keep correct time.  I cannot find any info on how to fix the Win2K server so the clock is set correctly.  What patches are available to fix the time on the Win2K server?

The easiest thing to do would be to make a batch with;
net time /setsntp:time-a.nist.gov
net stop w32time
net start w32time

The set it up under scheduled tasks to run twice a day.

The better way to set your server would be to make it an authoritative time server.  But that would be more work.
