  • time sync problem

    i'm using a domian with 2 ad server and same more server (exchange sql etc), one of my computers (a lap-top computer) in the domain does't sync the clock well.
    in his login scipt he supposed to sync the time with my dc server, but he sync with another computer on the network - a regual workstation computer.
    i tried to change it by net time and w32tm command. but noting.
    if same one have an idea how to fix it

    Your worksation may be configured to use a SNTP source other than the PDC emmulator in your domain.

    Run the command net time /setsntp on your workstation that is receiving time from the wrong machine.

    This will clear any existing SNTP configuration on your workstation. This should allow your workstation to receive its time from the PDC emulator in the doamin.

    I hope that helps!

      The right way to configure the time service in AD environment is by running:

      w32tm /config /update /syncfromflags:DOMHIER
      This will tell the service to use the domain hierarchy as the time source
