Hi, i have configured an authoritive ntp server. I am required to sync the time with an external server. How can i go about doing this?.  This are the steps which i have done.

- Windows 2003 server - NTP server - authoritive server used microsoft fix it tool to configure the NTP.
- In registry for the NTP server i pointed over to the external server as NTP server.
- I did a w32tm /resync  - it is able to sync

How can i verify if the NTP is really syncing with the external time server?  How can i also verify the windows 2003 internal NTP server is the main time source for the rest of its member servers and workstations?

For syncronization of time with external source

if you want to check then just
net stop w32time

net start w32time

you will see immediate events of syncronization...
