No need to restart the time service just because you want to change the time server.
The basic command is this, the /update informs the time service that its configuration changed.
w32tm.exe /config /manualpeerlist:"" /update

Open in new window

You can restart Windows time service without restarting cluster service. Windows time service not depends on cluster service.

Start--> Run--> Type cmd-->
Restart the windows time service.
Stop and restart the Windows Time Service using the ‘net stop’ and ‘net start’ commands:
net stop w32time && net start w32time

And Node Side

Net time \\<ntpserver> /set /yes

Where <ntpserver> is the DNS name or IP address of the time reference.
