Hi All,

Can someone assist me with a script that i can run as administrator from a server that will use a text file with computer names in it to set the time please using the net time /domain:acme /set command?

If there is an easier or better way to mass change time for workstations let me know.

This is urgent for me, if you can help please do.

Thanks

Use psexec from pstools (google it). The syntax is as follows: psexec \\computer1,computer2,... command /argument1 /argument2. To enumerate all computers in domain use \\* instead of the name of computer. And your command should be something like psexec \\* net time /domain:<your domain> /set. It will sync your workstations by the domain controller of your domain.
