Hello Experts,

Recently I have deployed a secondary domain controller (Server 2012 R2) and after that deployment, some of our PCs in the office, keep changing their time to the incorrect time. I just realized that the time on the secondary domain control is off so I fixed that and I am hoping all will come into sync shortly. However, when I run this command w32tm /query /source on all of the machines in the office I am getting wildly different results. Some say time.windows.com, others Local CMOS Time, others the secondary domain controller, and others the primary domain controller. How can I make all of the sync to the primary domain controller?

I have tried this command, net time \\ServerName /set /y but this is only temporary, it reverts back to whateer it was. What is the end all be all fix for this issue?

The PCs in the office are Windows 10 Pro.
