W32 time Event error

I moved the time server due to a retirement of a server and used Microsoft fix it for me to grant external time services but I get this message continually from the server.


Time Provider NtpClient: An error occurred during DNS lookup of the manually configured peer 'Server2,0x1'. NtpClient will try the DNS lookup again in 120 minutes. The error was: No such service is known. The service cannot be found in the specified name space. (0x8007277C)

What are the entries I need to put in the proper registery location(s) in order to get time services from a legitimate source?

Set the property
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters\NtpServer
in right value

Then stop and restart the Windows Time service using the following commands:
    net stop w32time
    net start w32time

You can do this using the

w32tm /config /update /manualpeerlist:"ip1 fqdn2 ip2"
/syncfromflags:MANUAL

command or using

net time /setsntp:"ip1 fqdn2 ip2"

Then restart w32time using

Net stop w32time && net start w32time
