Hi,

I got a new domain based on a SBS2011. I want to let the SBS synchronise time with an external source, like europe.pool.ntp.org. Then I want the rest of the servers sync time with the SBS.

There are many websites with information about how this is done. However, I can't get it to work properly. I tried the w32tm /config manualpeerlist etc.etc. commands, and I get no error, but time isn't syncing at all. Even when I restart the time service.

When I set date and time manually, after reboot it goes back to November 2011 somewhere.

Can someone provide me with the right procedure to get this done?

Thanks, you are fast!

One question about this.... I live in Europe, so do i still use the us.pool.ntp.org? Or do i have to change it for europe.pool.ntp.org?

To check current status:

In an elevated command prompt type: w32tm /query /status

To change ntp:

In an elevated command prompt type: w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:europe.pool.ntp.org

Of course you will enter the name of the pool that you will be using after the : in the command above. Be sure not to leave a space after the :

You now need to restart the windows time service for your change to take effect.

Once that is done you can check your work by executing the /status command again.


please provide the output of the status

sync time status
Then I restarted the server. And the time and date are back to 1-7-2011.
