Network Time Problems

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
Hi All,

I have a server, which is a domain member. on sbs2003, and its system clock keeps drifting.  Every day I have to manually synch it with the DC using the net time command.  The only error in the system log is w32time error id 50, which simply tells me that the clock is off.  What could cause this?  Is there a way to force it to constantly be in sync with the DC?

I know DCs use ntp, is this automatic, door do have to somehow configure it?

Thanks in advance,
