time synching on domain controller

Hello,

Our company had a domain controller server that crashed...I had to setup another server to be our new primary domain controller (win server 2003 r2) and we also have a secondary dc on another server.  We just bought 2 brand new computers (win xp pro sp3) and both were joined to the domain but both have a time sync issue and are not synching with the dc....both are 1 hour behind.  I did the resycn command as I've read others are doing but that did  not help.  Even resynced the dc with external time server and resynced pc's again but no luck....not sure what is causing this....

thanks,

kk

If time difference to big sync will not work. You need to set up time manually then time sync start working.

Just Try these Commands to reset the NTP Time.

Start => Run => CMD => TYPE   cd\        Then Enter
Then follow these steps
                                          net stop w32time
                                          w32tm /unregister
                                          w32tm /register
                                          net start w32time
                                          w32tm /resync

Tried both pieces of advice,

"I have use this command succesfully:
Net Time \\DCServerName /set"

...that one said it successfully synced with the time server but the clock did not change to the correct time and is still an hour behind.  Changed it to the correct time and it changed back about a minute later.....


Other solution:

Just Try these Commands to reset the NTP Time.

Start => Run => CMD => TYPE   cd\        Then Enter
Then follow these steps
                                          net stop w32time
                                          w32tm /unregister
                                          w32tm /register
                                          net start w32time
                                          w32tm /resync
Try this, Previously you are not unregister and reregister.

Kevin KilgoreAuthor Commented:
tried the net time \\computer /set /yes and it synced successfully but still wrong time...but here is something interesting:

it said the server i was trying to sync to has a current time of 2:42 and the server local time is 3:42 and when it tries to sync to that server using the command you recommended, it wants me to sync with the server's current time and not local....which the current time is one hour behind....hope that helps....
