Hey all,

I have a domain controller that will only boot to safe mode. There was a clock issue and the time was off by 45 minutes. The w32time service took a dump I guess. I repaired that expecting it to fix the issue but it has not. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Try disabling Windows Time and reboot then re-enable after the start. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc794792(v=ws.10).aspx

run MSCONFIG and check Boot and in case that safe boot is marked uncheck it

also you could try to reset time config by :

Stop-Service w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time

and restart computer, have you tried to press F8 before windows boots to choose normal boot ?


You would then do :
(peerlist depends on your country)
net stop w32time
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:”0.europe.pool.ntp.org 3.europe.pool.ntp.org
w32tm /config /reliable:yes
net start w32time

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.
