Set Windows (non domain joined) member server to sync time with a domain controller.
Posted on 2013-11-20
I have a few servers that live in our DMZ that I wish to sync with our domain controller that is on the inside network. These servers in the DMZ are not joined to the domain and are also running inside a Hyper V virtual machine which I believe is what is causing the time drift
The servers all run Windows Server 2008 R2.
So I am wondering how to set these servers to sync with the domain controller that is inside the private internal network.
I also understand firewall rules would need to be adjusted order for the servers in the DMZ to communicate with the domain controller.
I've been researching this, but am getting a lot of conflicting information, and some article indicate there is no concrete fix to get a non domain server to time sync with a Windows domain controller.
Looking for help,
