virtual domain controller time problems
Posted on 2010-09-17
here let me explain whole setup. we had only one domain controller (WIN SVR 2008) as physical box, then we converted it to virtual on Hyper V,
currently I have that old DC runnings as virtual, got one more bkup DC running virtual. and recently added one more physical DC as well to ensure uptime incase if virtual DC's failes etc.
since long time we are having Time synchonising problems, clocks used to go behind the actuall time on all DC's and network PC's and if we dont update time manually on main DC , time on whole network goes back 4-5 min everyday. and yes its not just like that since last one week instead of getting behind now time is in future. currently all dc's and network pc's are 10 min more than actual time.
could anyone list the steps how to get time sorted properly, which server should synchorinise with what time source, Hyper V guset time services to DC's etc , please suggest best setup in terms of time on virtual/phyiscal DC's
