How do I make Windows 2008 DC the NTP server on a Private Network using the CMOS clock on the DC as the authoritive time.  The server will need to provide NTP time to a NAS device

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I've found various documents on the internet for making a 2008 server an NTP server but not for my particular situation.  I have a private network (no access to the outside world) with a single DC that needs to provide NTP time to a newly aquired NAS device.  Since it does not have outside access I would need to use the CMOS clock of the DC as the authoritive time.  If someone could provide a detailed explanation on how to accomplish this it would be appreciated. Thanks, Bart
