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.

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:"ntp1.domain.com ntp2.domain.com" /update

Open in new window
