Hi,

We have 2 DC's with 2012 R2. Both are acting as NTP servers (VMware based).

The main DC (DC01) update its time from the internet while DC02 updates from DC01.
DC02 keep CORRECT time.
DC01 sometimes changes 2 hours ahead.

Please advise.

Thanks

Just curious:

Since DC2 is intended as backup machine (I presume it's on BDC role), why don't you sync it from internet, too ? That would increase reliability of the entire computing ensemble.

In that case all dependent workstations need two "server" in their config.
