Change time parameter in registry.

Posted on 2008-11-06
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
In windows 2000 we have sent an SNTP server using the command "NET TIME /Setsntp:[IP Address]". This places a registry key in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters. Then we set the frequency using the command "w32tm /period 65532" however I cannot find where in the registry it stores this. To force this out to users (they can't run those commands) I need to use a reg hack via SMS Installer. Please can someone tell me where the reg key for the period the time updates is?

    Sods law, post this and then manage to solve it. The key is in the same place and called Period. They just have weird names instead of the code you put in the cmd line.
