Virtual Machines Domain Controllers synchronizing their times with the Hosts

Hello,

I have two 2008 DCs (One being the PDCemulator) being virtual machines. I have found that these DC's are synchronizing the time from there hosts HYPERVs and not the other way around.

How can I fix this?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

You want to edit the settings of the respective VMs in the Hyper-V manager, scroll down to "Integration Services" and uncheck "Time Synchronization".

If the Hyper-V hosts are members of the domain, they are going to sync with a DC automatically so no special configuration is required of the hosts themselves.

I would select and configure an external time source, either GPS or Internet if you have to, for the PDC Emulator.

Andrew, what would you recommend as a good NTP server in the internet?
