  • Time Synchornization

    What is best time synchronization method i can if my AD spans on several regions and all are in one domain


    Main DC is in US (PDC emulator)
    other DCs are in Middle east, Asia pacific

    IF dcs in other region synchronize time with US definitely it will change the time on other regions DCs too...right?

    Time sync uses UTC, so time zones remain intact.

    You really should sync with the PDC emulator which, in turn, syncronises from an NTP server (preferably not time.microsoft.com which is out of sync half the time )

      In addition, computers sync with their authenticating DC, not with the PDC emulator. The PDC emulator is the authoratative time source for the domain and is the server that other DC's will sync with, but member servers and client computers will sync with their authenticating DC.

        Clients not synchronized with servers can occur if the Windows Time service has been stopped manually. To resolve this issue, start the Windows Time service.

        To start the Windows Time service:
        1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
        2. Type net start w32time, and then press ENTER.
