On my network I have 2 domain controllers- both of which are Server 2008 r2 64 bit. I have an app server that is a domain controller with server 2003 installed. I also have 12 workstations with XP pro installed. The network time has been off for quite some time now. At this point it is off by about 8.5 minutes. Consequently, all of my workstations are also off. The network appears to be in sync but I need to fix this issue as our time clock software gets its time from the network. I have several SQL instances that run on the primary domain controller. I know that workstations update from the server that holds the fsmo roles, but how do I change the time on that server? Also, how to I set it so that the server will update from a reliable online source? Will this have any effect on the sql instances that are running? Are there any other side effects of changing the time? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!
