I have an issue with my domain controllers syncing time.  I ran the Microsoft "Fix it" to set and authoritative time server on my PDC and now my time is syncing 10 minutes fast.  I need to know how to either fix it of back it up to where it is not using an external server and I manually set the time and set it up so that all my workstations and servers pickup the time from it.

i had this issue in the past.  i checked the time on all servers.  changed the ones that were incorrect, rebooted all servers and was ok from then on.  your workstations will be getting the time from the server.

Just check if your PDC is deployed in virtual infrastructure

In that case you need to remove Virtual machine time sync with physical host server

If PDC is physical server, then check \ replace its CMOS battery

The best way is to sync it with external time source
Run below commands on your PDC master

If you have multiple time servers:
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:"ntpserver.contoso.com clock.adatum.com" /syncfromflags:manual /update /reliable:yes

Open in new window

Replace servers in the manual peer list with yours

If you have simgle time server:
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:ntpserver.contoso.com /syncfromflags:manual /update /reliable:yes

Open in new window

My PDC is a VM running in Hyper v.  How does one shut off the time sync between it's host and itself?  

Here is the server info:

C:\Users\administrator.NSCALIFT>w32tm /monitor
NSCA-DC.NSCALIFT.local *** PDC ***[[fe80::cc81:28ab:5775:cf0c%10]:123]:
    ICMP: 0ms delay
    NTP: +0.0000000s offset from NSCA-DC.NSCALIFT.local
        RefID: 80.84.77.86.rev.sfr.net [86.77.84.80]
        Stratum: 2
NSCA-FILES.NSCALIFT.local[10.0.0.151:123]:
    ICMP: 0ms delay
    NTP: +81.0877594s offset from NSCA-DC.NSCALIFT.local
        RefID: (unspecified / unsynchronized) [0x00000000]
        Stratum: 0

Right click Guest OS - Settings - check under Integration service - Disable Time Synchronization. Than reboot
