  • Set Domain Controller time

    We used remote time server to set the Time of our domain controller now we are going to set our domain not update the time setting from out and the local date must be the same of domain current time...

    Re: Set Domain Controller time

    Clients should automatically synchronise from the PDC emulator

    Are you wanting to stop users manually setting times?

      Re: Set Domain Controller time

      our structure As:

      Forest:

      Domain 1: domain1.com
      DC: dc.domain1.com

      Domain 2: domain2.com
      DC: dc.domain2.com

      dc.domain2.com get time from dc.domain1.com now we are going to prevent update from.

      and i faced the issue about client, some of them take Current time on domain controll and other take local time

      please see the net time command run on exchange server:

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Z:\>net time
      Current time at \\DC is 5/7/2012 11:54 AM

      Local time (GMT+02:00) at \\DC is 5/7/2012 10:54 AM

      The command completed successfully.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Client
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Z:\>net time
      Current time at \\DC is 5/7/2012 10:55 AM

      The command completed successfully.
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------

        Domain time is independent of time zones so should not be an issue on the server
        What does the DC show?
        And what is the client OS?

            Re: Set Domain Controller time

            Why are you doing this?

            If you have the DC (PDC Emulator) from Domain 1 set as the time source for Domain 2, is Domain 2 in the same Regional Location (time zone) as Domain 1. If the 2 Domain are in different locales then you are going to have a serious time skew if the Regional settings are not changed as well.

            Of course I may have totally misunderstood the 3 part sentences that you have typed above.

            I understand that English is not your primary language but could you please try and explain what you are trying to do in greater detail. The more you tell us the better we can help. Ta.

              Dear,

              Our domain is part of forest and the root server for the forest is not our domain.
              * * * *DC1: Windows Server 2003 x86
              * * * *DC12: Windows Server 2008 x64

              Our Domain controllers update time from root server so when i run the w32tm /monitor the result as below:
              --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
              Z:\>w32tm /monitor
              DC1.ourdomain.com [192.168.1.10]:
              ICMP: 0ms delay.
              NTP: -0.2146681s offset from DC2.ourdomain.com
              RefID: ODC1[172.19.1.101]
              DC2.ourdomain.com *** PDC *** [192.168.1.11]:
              ICMP: 0ms delay.
              NTP: +0.0000000s offset from DC2.ourdomain.com
              RefID: ODC2[172.19.1.102]
              --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


              ODC1 and ODC2 is part of domain contain the root server.
              the all DC's have the same time Zone (Cairo +2)

              DC1 W32Time Parameters:
              ntpserver: ODC1
              ServiceMain: SvchostEntry_W32Time
              Type: NTP
              DC2 W32Time Parameters:
              ntpserver: time.windows.com,0x9
              ServiceMain: SvchostEntry_W32Time
              Type: NT5DS

              DC2: Confiured as RID, PDC and Infrastrucure

              when i changed the time on our domains the time return back to old time

              Please Advice

                Not to hi jack this thread, but what time source is windows 2003std with default settings, configured to use?
                The local CMOS clock or a time server external?

                thanks
