Update computer time when not connected to domain

All our computers are joined to our domain and normally update their time from the domain controllers.

Some of our users with laptops are often away from the office for a fairly long period and logon using cached credentials.

Is there a way for them to update their computer time from an Internet time server? The "Internet Time" is not available when clicking on the clock. I know they can set the time manually.

One of our laptops does not seem to be keeping very good time.

Running the command below will set the primary timeserver as your DC, then an external source.  If the laptop clock is continually changing, you might want to check the CMOS battery.

w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:your.dc.com, 0.pool.ntp.org
