2008 R2 time server is invalid

I was trying to fix my DC because the time was not syncing. I stopped then w32time service but when I try to start it, it gives me error "the service name is invalid". What could be wrong? I cant find the service in the "service list" on the server.

Try below in elevated command prompt.

net start w32time
You need to register Windows time service , if its not on the list

elevated command prompt:
w32tm /register

Start NETLOGON service first, it is likely paused

You can also export service from Registry on a working computer (PDCe needs to be NTP with NTP IP and others NT5DS), import and restart
