Hey

I have an internal firewall hosting our NTP server.

I would like to set out DC to use this NTP sever

I have added the following:

C:\Windows\system32>w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:10.1.0.1
 /update

C:\Windows\system32>net stop w32time
C:\Windows\system32>net start w32time
C:\Windows\system32>w32tm /resync

But in the evetlog i see:

Time Provider NtpClient: No valid response has been received from manually configured peer 10.1.0.1 after 8 attempts to contact it. This peer will be discarded as a time source and NtpClient will attempt to discover a new peer with this DNS name. The error was: The peer is unreachable.

I have also added 0x8 ... same problem.

I have a small NTP tool - that show the NTP server is responding.

What to do?

Mike

You should ensure that UDP port 123 is open to that port,it is probably the main cause. also remember that the time configuration depends on the time service configuration.

NT5DS means that the ntp client (even doman controllers) will search for the PDC on the domain and get it's hour from it, if your DC is configured this way it will override any configured NTP server and search for the PDC, you can change this setting from the following reg key: HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\w32time\Parameters\

Type: NTP (REG_SZ) or NT5DS
NtpServer means that the client will search for the configured stratum server, you can try adding somethin like 10.1.0.1,0x9

I strongly recommend to create a dns alias (ntp.domain.com) and point that to the IP you like, you can unse that dns record instead to configure the NTP clients so if you need to change the IP don't have to crawl on all you customized servers.

cheers.
