    Re: Domain Sync Time Problems

    Well, let's start with errors, event logs and environment analysis. Is there anything in the event logs at all on any servers that could be related ? Possibly w32tm messages.

    Next - environment analysis. Tell us about your environment. How many servers. Is it an Active Directory Domain. What operating system on the servers ?
    What sort of external network connection do you have, and what do you mean by it fails for large numbers of hours ?

    By the sounds of it, what's happening is your domain controller is staying synced off the NTP server you configured, however when the internet disconnects, the domain controler reverts to it's pre-configured time.. which breaks all the trusts.
    Once the internet comes back, NTP updates the time again.

    I suspect you may be missing a Daylight Savings patch, or something like that... Or simply have your time zones configured incorrectly perhaps.
