Clock always fast on network

Hello,

Our time on all our servers and workstations is always 5 minutes fast. Even if I change the time manually on the servers or workstations they change in a matter of a day or two and become 5 minutes fast. How can I fix that?

Thanks

I'll presume your workstations are getting their time checks from the server.

You need to connect your server to an authorative time server.   See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_server and the lists within to choose one.

probably just need to do this on the pdc-e domain controller:


w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:time.nist.gov,0x8 /syncfromflags:MANUAL
net stop w32time
net start w32time
w32tm /resync

then you should be good

Thanks for the response rx, question: Can I do this anytime? Would affect anything on my network if I make the change during busibess hours?

nope, its clean and easy, just again make sure you do it to the domain controller with the pdce role

nice thanks for the points.  found it a few years ago on a bulletin board group and saved it ever since because it does a great job of locking the time down, especially if you're dinking with virtual machines and your host wanders (as they tend to do)
