  • Windows client wont sync with NTP server

    Hello
    I have configured a router as NTP server (ip add 200.20.16.169). Both my DC:s sync with the NTP server from the command: w32tm /Query /status ( as shown in Picture) So far so good.
    I have created a GPO at my DC which specify the ntp server, and enable NTP client.
    But when I log in with a windows client which has the GPO linked, and issue w32tm /Query /status it Points to local CMOS clock. How do I fix this?

    You should have only the PDC Emulator synching with the router (or a reliable external time source like ntp.org) and the rest of the computers sync with PDC Emulator. Here's info on how to configure: http://blogs.technet.com/b/nepapfe/a...directory.aspx

        If they DC is synching with the router and the clients are syncing with the DC then you're all set.

          So my dc Points to my NTP server ip 200.20.16.169 , and my Client Point to my DC 200.20.16.131. Just though my client also should have ntp adress 200.20.16.169. But now I understand, client is receiving time from it's PDC emulator.
