Hi,

I need to configure my 2 domain controllers to sync with a external time source. I believe it is a registry key. Does anyone know how to properly configure? I am on the West coast PCT.

thx

First I should run from command prompt

net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time

Then I can run this command from command prompt?

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:”tock.usno.navy.mil, 0×8 tick.usno.navy.mil, 0×8¿ /syncfromflags:MANUAL /reliable:yes /update

I replaced your ntp server with the ones located here - http://tycho.usno.navy.mil/ntp.html is it suppose to have 2 time servers?

Thx

You can use one or two NTP servers, the Navy clocks are not going down anytime soon
