How to I resolve an issue with Windows 2012 Essentials. The time drifts and does not hold the correct time?

Hi Experts,

Please help.

How to resolve an issue with Windows 2012 Essentials.  The time drifts and does not hold the correct time?

This is a domain controller and this causes all the computer on the network to show an inaccurate time. Is there a way to have it sync to a time server on the internet so that we will always have the correct time?
Windows Server 2012

Thanks. How would I find out what IP address or web address to put in so that it knows that I am in Phoenix AZ USA?

In the Command Prompt window, type the following line, where peers is a comma-separated list of IP addresses of the appropriate time sources, and press ENTER:

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist: peers /syncfromflags:MANUAL

The time sources you choose depend on your time zone. For example, if your domain controller is located in the Pacific Time zone, this line might read:

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:131.107.1.10 /syncfromflags:MANUAL

In this example, the IP address of the timeserver is used instead of the fully qualified domain name for security purposes.



I am located in Phoenix Arizona. We do not recongnise daylight savings at all.
