I have windows server 2008 R2 as my main domain. All of my client’s computer synchronize with the domain server to update time. Gradually and eventually this month our time in client and server were about 3.5 minutes late than the standard time. Followed the following http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816042
and found out it all the settings were right. Even after that my time still did not got updated.
Then I followed the following steps
On the main DC:
a. “NET TIME /SETSNTP: 188.8.131.52”
b. “NET STOP W32TIME”
c. “NET START W32TIME”
d. “W32TM /config /reliable:YES”
e. “W32TM /resync /rediscover”
On all other DCs:
W32TM /resync /rediscover.
It did not updated.
Just wanted to know any ideas to start researching to synchronize to correct time. I used http://tycho.usno.navy.mil/ntp.html
document to synchronize.
