Hi guys,

I have an organization with about 150 + computers and servers. What would be the best way to change all the computers time, everyone is about 10 minutes ahead. Only user workstations are on the DHCP server. But I also need to change the time in 30+ servers on the same domain.

Thank you

You really just need to change on DC that holds PDC emulator role

ex,

The authoritative is by default the PDC emulator, other DC's will sync from it. You could try and find out what you're syncing with by typing "w32tm /monitor" command.

I have seen networks where some past admin has forced the network to sync with a server other than the PDC.
