ADS Timesync Clients

Dear comm...

I've a question with the timesync configuration in ADS.

Regedit - root w32time:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time]

I've configure the pdc as a reliable time server with an external time source.
Everything seems to work fine with the pdc server.
Also I've changed the sync interval to 5minutes (for testing). (Value -> SpecialPollInterval)
Seems wo work fine.


Now, what about the clients?
Seems that the clients will not look at the value from the SpecialPollInterval, it's just when you have added a ntpserver value
with 0x1.

So on which entry the clients will listen to force the sync update?
Is it the 'UpdateInterval' ?


The timesync between the pdc and client will work fine. Seems to be synched every 1hour.

How can i modify the sync interval for clients? (xp and w2k3)

thanks
regards
A.F.

You can sync the clients and control time service through group policy.
