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?

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)
