I'm using SBS 2003 and the PDC hasn't been able to sucessfully sync with an external time source for some time now.

I've followed the steps outlined here with no sucess:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816042

I also just tried the Fix it 50395 which wasn't available the last time I tried to fix this. That comes back with "This Microsoft Fix it failed to process"

I don't know what to do next so you thought I'd seek help on here

Thanks in advance.

create a batch file to run the following commands or just run one after the other:

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:”time.windows.com” /syncfromflags:manual
w32tm /config /update
net stop w32time
net start w32time
w32tm /resync /nowait

Thanks for your response Tim but unfortunately I've already tried that only without the /nowait

Tried it again but I still end up with event id 12 written to the event log and

'The computer did not resync becasue no time data was available'

using /nowait results in

'The command completed sucessfully'

Enable Windows NTP Client was Enabled and disabling it made no difference. However I think that should be enabled.

'Enabling the Windows NTP Client allows your computer to synchronize its computer clock with other NTP servers'

If it's too much trouble to sort, i would go third party (which I did) and went with Atomic Clock : http://www.worldtimeserver.com/atomic-clock/

That looks like the best solution. I'd heard Atomic Clock before but didnt know it was free. You will be assigned the points once i've got it up an running.

Thnaks for all your help.
