NTP Issues with Workstation

I have several PDC's located in each capital city and users authenticate to these local PDC's. Onse state in particular still running Windows 2000 Server (PDC) has a PC that regularly goes out of synch (time) with the PDC so i must log into the machine remotely and force the update before the user can log back onto his machine.

I understand that the time synchronisation is advertised by the PDC but what about the prospect of setting up a central NTP server in the Head Office and configuring each machine to use this central NTP server to keep all the times up to date?

Will this cause issues with the workstations authenticating on the PDCs?

First Investigate, why the Server failing to Sync time.

Check - event logs.

Clients allways check with their local PDC emulator.. If your PDC time is ok , they will get authentication to login.

By default first DC with role PDC act as a central time source.. It defer again how you configured it.

--net time /querysntp -- it will show your time source
