hello all
server 2008 does not have the option to sync the time with a time server that i can see.
mt DNS servers on reboot pick up the time a few mins out and this then is passed down to clients and the most important Staff Clocking in and out machine.

Is there anyway to set up the server to get its time from somewhere as the option has disappeared since i set them up as DC's

Thanks
