Clock always fast on network


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?

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 and the lists within to choose one.

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
how'd it go
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)
