Good Morning Folks:
I need to "force" some systems (Windows 8) which is on the domain to NOT use the AD for time. Unfortunately the AD manager has decided to not fix the time on the AD and it's off by several minutes (5 +). Calls to the AD Manager have gone unanswered.
I do know already that a machine on the domain looks to the AD for time. And that's why you don't get the Internet Time tab. But I'm trying to override that.
I have tried the following:
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:0.pool.ntp
Which didn't work
Then I tried the fix from Microsoft:
Which I realize would apply to a server but I was hopeful.
Any help would be most gratefully appreciated. Sounds trivial - it really is - off by 5 minutes but then again I have demanding users (who doesn't!)
