One server won't sync with the Operations Master in a Server 2008R2 environment
Posted on 2012-09-14
We have a Server 2008 R2 network, hosted on Hyper-V (the time synchronisation integration service is NOT selected). There are 12 member servers and 2 DCs, which all synchronise well with the FZMO-Operations Master (which is one of our DCs).
The only server that doesn't sync properly is our SQL server; it's out by about 5 seconds.
I have tried restarting the time service and "w32tm /resync" but while it says that it has completed succesfully, the 5 second delay persists.
However, I have found one difference when I queried it for the time server (w32tm /query /source); it showed the non-Operations Master DC as its source (strangely enough,that DC syncs correctly with the Operations Master).
The w32tm /resync /rediscover command doesn't seem to be changing the source to the Operations Master either.
What do i need to change so that the /rediscover option points to the correct Operations Master?
Any other suggestions please?
