Windows Time Service Not working
Posted on 2011-05-13
We were experiencing issues with time synchronization across our domain, so we found a server where the time source was working OK and exported the whole W32time Registry key.
We applied this to our domain group policy to distribute, but sent it to all our servers by mistake.
This has had the effect of breaking w32time on all our Servers.
I am not sure what part of W32time has broken the service but would like to know how to get the time settings back to default so that I can set them up again properly on our 2003 and 2008 servers
The error message when trying to start the service is:
Error 1083: the executable program that the service is configured to run does not implement the service
I have tried Unregister/Register commands with no success.
