Here is a general knowledge question. Looking for an explanation of some sort. Regarding the configuration of a Windows Time Server, every step-by-step article I have found on the subject has told me to set my "announceflags" to a value of 5. This includes the step-by-step document on Microsoft's site (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816042
). After doing some digging, I found some information from Microsoft detailing what numbers you can use for announceflags. They say that 10 is the default, and that the other numbers available are 0, 1, 2, 4, and 8. So where is 5? What does it stand for? Is this a typo in EVERYONE'S documentation? Is this a valid announceflag number? What does it mean?
If someone can tell me what 5 means, points for you. You're gonna need proof though.
I have no idea though why Microsoft would publish a document on how to configure a time server, and then have no definition for the number 5. Makes no sense.
