I am trying to set some time servers on my PDC so that the clients get the correct time from the PDC. However i cannot find any time service in my services.msc console neither can i find the correct registry key beeing:

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters\Type

Whenever i use w32tm /monitor i get the following message:

BASSERVER.basconsultancy.local [192.168.1.3]:
    ICMP: 0ms delay.
    NTP: -20.1875000s offset from BASFile.basconsultancy.local
        RefID: unspecified / unsynchronized [0.0.0.0]
basexact.basconsultancy.local [192.168.1.30]:
    ICMP: 0ms delay.
    NTP: -4.6093750s offset from BASFile.basconsultancy.local
        RefID: unspecified / unsynchronized [0.0.0.0]
BASFile.basconsultancy.local *** PDC *** [192.168.1.2]:
    ICMP: 0ms delay.
    NTP: error WSAECONNRESET - no server listening on NTP port
basmonitor.basconsultancy.local [192.168.1.7]:
    ICMP: 0ms delay.
    NTP: -49.4712848s offset from BASFile.basconsultancy.local
        RefID: unspecified / unsynchronized [0.0.0.0]

BASfile is the PDC as you can see. But this server also have an error saying there is nog server listing on NTP port. That can be correct because there is no time service available.

Someone have any suggestions?

Let's reset your time service on the PDCE:

Open a command prompt
Type:
"net stop w32time"
"w32tm /unregister" - you might have to do this twice
"w32tm /register
"net start w32time"
"net time /setsntp:YourNTPTimeSource"

You'll need to run the first four commands on the other DCs and NTP clients in your domain (if you made any changes to your domain time settings).

This was a good solution but I also followed this advice from another site which was perfect
"Try recreating the time service first.
Open a command prompt, enter
net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time
Ignore error messages you might get from the first two commands.Report error messages you might get from the last two commands."
