Do you have a NTP (Network Time Protocol) server on your network?  If you do, the NTP is probably controlling the time on your network.

the only thing that is different is that we moved the the FSMO Roles to this new server.
In the registry it says the time server goes to time.windows.com

Can you go to the command prompt and run this command:

w32tm /monitoring

This should tell you where your server is getting the time from.  Please post the output.

Please also check out the settings about your NTP server at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc773263%28WS.10%29.aspx.

Steinmto,

I have follow those instructions. that has fixed the PDC but the other domain controllers are not updating as well as the Desktops.
Is there something i can use to force this.
I did run the sync command on both a domain controller and a desktop and they dont get the same time

I used to run "net time \\servername /set /yes" in the login scripts to make sure the desktops updated at login.  You could deploy this as a scheduled task.  I think there is also a setting in group poilcy.  I can look more if you want that.
