Piont domain to external time server

Hey all.

We are deploying an external time server for a domain.  So far, I know that by pointing the PDC to the time server should so the trick.

Do you have a preferred method of doing this?

Thank you,

No real trick.  Just update the PDCe role holder to the external server.  Or if you are using a device to set the PDCe time, you just need to change the PDCe stratum so other servers see it as authoritative.  But either way, it is standard procedure.
Please follow my below article and run first set of command on the PDC server and you are done.
