Guys

I understand the principals of the sntp protocol within windows in that the DCs take their time from the PDC emulator and clients take their time from the respective logon DC. Is it possible while keeping this structure in place to allow the DCs to act as NTP servers for other devices on the network, i.e Cisco switches, Avaya ACD platforms etc. I am trying not to introduce too many new peices of equiupment to our network and thought this may be a tidy way to do it.

Regards

most network devices can be pointed to any time server so pointing to the PDC should be fine. If it doesn't work you could point to external time server.  here is a list http://tf.nist.gov/tf-cgi/servers.cgi

Sorry maybe i should be more specific. I have 7 sites running under one active Directory. I am looking to synchronise each of the sites "assets" with the DC that is local to site. At the moment i believe he DC updates from the PDC emuilator. I am not looking to change this function but would like the DC to be authoritive for the local equipment on site.
