    You do this on the PDC emulator DC

    Your PDC emulator should be getting its time from a reliable time source.
    The default is To check your PDC, issue
    from the command line or run dialog.

    To set it to use netclock, issue
    %windir%\SYSTEM32\NET.EXE TIME /SETSNTP:netclock
    from the command line or run dialog.

    With the time source set, issue
    %windir%\SYSTEM32\NET.EXE TIME /SET /YES
    from the command line or run dialog.

    When you shut down normally, the time service should reset the hardware
    clock to the time on the software clock.
