Please explain what should I replace here?

'Type' in the right panel  of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters  is set to NTP instead of NT5DS. Changing to NT5DS synchronizes to domain hierarchy.

Open regedit and go to the location mentioned in the document (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters)
After the string (reg_sz) with name 'Type' it should now mention NTP, please change that to NT5DS
