Domain Controller login problem

I can't remotely  connect to a new DC, with the following message. Any idea ?

"Remote Desktop cannot vertify the identify of the remote
computer because there is a time or date difference between
your computer and the remote computer."

How to check which DC is the time server in my AD domain ?

Tks

Unless the defaults have been changed it'd hierarchal and the DC with the PDC emulator role is the master time server for the domain, the other DCs synchronize time with the PDC emulator and act as time servers for all other computers that are members of the domain.  If the domain is a child of another its PDC emulator synchronizes with the PDC emulator of the parent domain and so on until it reaches the forest root domain.  MS recommends configuring the PDC emulator of the forest root domain to use a reliable external time clock.

Running the following command from the command-line will list services each DC is advertising including time server:

dcdiag /v /test:advertising

To access your DC and correct any time issue you may need to synchronize time with it first.  Run the following from the command-line:

Net Time /server:YOURDC /set

you can also run it on any windows machine to know what time server it sync to.
the way I did this on my company ..is that I am syncing the DC to a public time server
and then all machines inside our network sync automatically to our DC.
