Not sure why but I cant sync with an external time source.  
If I run "W32tm /resync / /nowait"  
I get the error message  The following error occurred: The RPC server is unavailable. (0x800706BA)

Not matter what computer I run it on in my domain I get this error.  If I run it on a comcast connection outside of our firewall I get the same error message on a domain joined laptop.  I have not run this from a laptop not joined to the domain yet.   Do you know what might be causing it?  Perhaps a group policy or something?
