Setting up PDC to sync with external time server
Posted on 2014-07-18
I am trying to setup a Windows 2003 server as an authoritative time server that syncs with an external time source.
Additionally, we may be moving this to a Windows 2008 R2 server.
I am receiving an error "The computer did not resync because no time data was available"
I have ran the following commands (as administrator) on the PDC:
Stop Time service: C:>net stop w32time
Configure the external time sources: C:> w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:”0.pool.ntp.org, 1.pool.ntp.org, 2.pool.ntp.org”
Set as Reliable source: C:>w32tm /config /reliable:yes
Start time service: C:>net start w32time
Resync time: w32tm /resync
I believe that the resync command will force the PDC to syncronize with the external source.
Please help me get this setup properly.
