hi,
At one of my clients server (which is the only DC running on O/S server 2003) I can't make the server to take time from external time sourse. I tried 2 different NTP time sources i.e. ntp1.netbox.com.au and ntp.cs.mu.OZ.AU.
this is what I am doing
net time /setsntp:"ntp1.netbox.com.au"
when I am typing in net time /querysntp, I am getting ntp1.netbox.com.au
then I am typing in     net stop w32time
    net start w32time
w32tm /resync /rediscover.

now when I type in net time it is still showing  \\(servername)\ and the time and date.
can you guys suggest whether I am missing anything or doing anyting wrong...

First, ensure your firewall port NTP 123 is opened.

And then even try it...

For example: Assigned PDC to NTP server, now sync with time.windows.com
*** NTP server
>>Type the following command to configure the PDC emulator and then press ENTER:
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:peers /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update

With "peers" you can set the time source, either DNS name (time.windows.com) or an ip address from a reliable time source.

Here you can find some of them:
http://www.pool.ntp.org/ 

>>Then type the command to establish the connection
w32tm /resync /rediscover.

>>Further checking... (now you are able to see the sync connection has been established)
w32tm /monitor
w32tm /monitor / computers:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (NTP server)


*** Client servers and desktop
>>To configure a client computer for automatic domain time synchronization
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update

After that run:
net stop w32time
net start w32time
