  • 2008 R2 DC as Time Server

    Can non windows devices (which are not member of the active directory domain) use the Windows 2008 R2 domain controller as NTP server so that they can sync the time?

      The link only talks about time sync among the members of active directory domain. Can I use the DC as a NTP server for Cisco router using port 123?

        Time sync among AD DC's happens with port 123.

        What your actually doing is setting a time source that all devices can use.

        You normal setup in a domain is that your DC's time sync with your PDC Emulator and then clients will sync with the logon server that they use as a DC. Setting your Cisco router to use the server as a time server should be as simple as setting it to use the PDC Emulator or a local DC.
