weve had a couple of incidents where one of our servers time keeps going out of sync.
its usually about 15 minutes but thats enough to stop the server from being usable by the users... cant connect to any shares or printers on it etc
the Time Service event is
The time service has not synchronized the system time for 86400 seconds because none of the time service providers provided a usable time stamp. The time service will not update the local system time until it is able to synchronize with a time source. If the local system is configured to act as a time server for clients, it will stop advertising as a time source to clients. The time service will continue to retry and sync time with its time sources. Check system event log for other W32time events for more details. Run 'w32tm /resync' to force an instant time synchronization.
the solution is simple... restart the windows time service
but does anybody know why this keeps happening?
is there anything specific i should check in our environment... something on the DC or the server itself?
let me know if you need any more information...
