have a windows domain with two domain servers, one as login, and one is exchange.  My xp pro clients have found another xp desktop to sync their time with , not the domain cntrl.  How do you stop?  How do you disengage the xp desktop from that pc and have it sync with domain cntrl.  I have no idea how it would even latch on to the random xp desktop for its time service.  How could you find out?

Three steps....

[1] Stop the w32time service
[2] Run w32tm /unregister && w32tm /register at the command prompt
[3] Start the w32time service
