I had an issue last week and needed to call Microsoft and Yesterday one of our Hyper-V VM's is getting W32Time errors. The errors are the following.
First I see this.
Event ID 38 W32Time
The time provider NtpClient cannot reach or is currently receiving invalid time data from PDCSERVER.com (ntp.d| IP of VM with errors->IP of PDC).
Than a few minutes later followed by these errors and warnings every 20-30 minutes
Event ID 24 W32Time
Time Provider NtpClient: No valid response has been received from domain controller PDC.com after 8 attempts to contact it. This domain controller will be discarded as a time source and NtpClient will attempt to discover a new domain controller from which to synchronize.
Event ID 29 W32Time
The time provider NtpClient is configured to acquire time from one or more time sources, however none of the sources are currently accessible. No attempt to contact a source will be made for 15 minutes. NtpClient has no source of accurate time.
The crazy thing is that it is in fact syncing to the tee with the PDC. Meaning the seconds minutes etc.. are perfectly synced. This is the only VM that has the issue. Microsoft didn't want to touch it because the VM is WinServer2003 but the tech said just run the followin
w32tm /resync /rediscover
net time (to make sure its getting it from the PDC)
Once I run w32tm /resync /rediscover the errors go away for a while and the message above goes from receiving invalid time to valid time.
How can I fix this because I find it weird that it is perfectly synced and I see these errors and warning.
The PDC is a physical server running Win Server 2008 Standard R2 with the Hyper-V role installed.
The server with the warnings is a VM running inside Hyper-V and the OS is Win Server 2003.
Thanks for your help all of you.
