NTP settings on Windows 2008 reverting to Local CMOS Clock
Posted on 2014-08-26
I have set multiple domain servers in multiple domains to point to an external source for thier time. All have functioned properly except one. When I w32tm /query /source I get Local CMOS clock.
To configure the time settings I type the command:
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:<IPADDRESS> /syncfromflags:manual /update
I have stopped and started service, unregistered and reregistered w32tm dll.
Sometimes this gets it to work temporarily, but it always reverts back and many times I can't make the change.
In the registry, under w32time/Parameters key, the "NTPServer" value is set to the proper IPADDRESS above, the "Type" value is set to NTP.
All settings match other DCs that function properly except under NTPServer Key. Here it is missing the all the values that start with "Chain". I added them manually and they soon disapear. I'm not sure how important this is to getting the source setup.
Thanks in advance for help
