Need to update the time server on PDC and the other servers in the domain. Is this correct?

Command on PDC’s
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:"ntpserver1.ourserver.com,0x8 ntpserver2.ourserver.com,0x8" /syncfromflags:MANUAL /update
w32tm /resync /rediscover

Command on all other domain servers.
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /reliable:no /update
w32tm /resync
w32tm /resync

On a PDC
Start elevated command prompt
W32tm /query /status

Source will be CMOS or System Clock (if there aren't any source configured)

Net Stop W32Time
W32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:"64.4.10.33"
W32tm /config /reliable:yes
Net Start W32Time
W32tm /config /update

W32tm /query /status
Source should now be 64.4.10.33  (time.windows.com) using IP address is nice as it avoids warning message from source Time-Service event id 134 due to DNS issues

On clients or other servers joined to a domain
Start elevated command prompt
W32tm /resync

W32tm /query /status
Source should now be your PDC

If necessary, on any machine you could run the following to reset them all to defaults which would make sure they use the domain hierarchy.
net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time
