Last Modified: 2012-05-05
A few of my workstations are not properly time syncing with my domain server (bb01.bailey.local or  I have tried both NT5DS and NTP syncronization and I am totally stuck.  Attached is a registry export from a misbehaving workstation.

I will upload an export from the server if needed, however most of my workstation's sync no problem.

If you import this reg file into your server it will configure the external time source with all the correct parameters. Then on the client you can then run w32tm /resync /rediscover.

If I run w32tm /resync /rediscover.... i get:

 The computer did not resync because the required time change was too big.

(Daylight savings made the computers all an hour off... I don't use automatic daylight savings adjustments)

What registry file are you referring to?  The one I posted is from the workstation, not the server.

I believe the server is setup properly already.
