Hi All,

I got mixed environment of Windows Server 2003 and 2008 that is not joined to the domain and some of them also joined to the domain, what I'd like to do is to get the time server value which this particular server currently in synch with using pwoershell.

Is it possible ?

Not sure what your problem is but "The W32Time service is not a full-featured NTP solution that meets time-sensitive application needs and is not supported by Microsoft as such."

Have a look at the following links to get a better understanding

Give this a go:

$servers = @('server01','server02')

foreach ($server in $servers){
$ntps = w32tm /query /computer:$server /configuration | ?{$_ -match 'ntpserver:'} | %{($_ -split ":\s\b")[1]}
new-object psobject -property @{
    Server = $Server
    NTPSource = $ntps
    }
}

how to execute this against DMZ VM which doesn't join the AD domain?

yes in this case you would have to run it under a different security context (probably something like DMZSERVER\administrator).  Also given that this machine is on your DMZ you are probably traversing your firewall which is an added wrinkle.

If you are crossing a firewall you should probably read up on this: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/wmi/archive/2009/07/22/new-default-ports-for-ws-management-and-powershell-remoting.aspx
