The CPA firm that I work for is splitting, half is joining another firm and the other half will continue on with business as normal.  Server hardware will be split, the half that's leaving will be taking the DC (Server1) that held the FSMO roles.  I have already moved all FSMO roles to a DC (Server2) that's staying.  My question is what are the steps to reconfigure the network time service from Server1 to Server2?

Server1 & Server2 are both Server 2012 R2

Thanks in Advance
