    Ok I ran command NET TIME \\NewServerToGetTimeFrom /SET /YES  and it completed successfully
    But it keeps defaulting back to the server I don’t want it to go to, I’m trying to get all my workstations to get their time from the Domain controller but even the Domain controller shows the time of the other server when I run the {Net Time}.
