Windows Time Issues
Sometimes, to resolve networking issues, you will notice that Windows Time can play a significant role and is usually overlooked. Follow these steps to get a computer to get back on the correct time.
timedate.cpl=> Find the name of the time server in the Internet Time => Change Settings tab.
Try to ping the name of the time server.
If it doesn’t work, run => cmd =>
1 2 3 4
net stop w32time w32tm /unregister w32tm /register net start w32time
If you get “Access Denied” messages anywhere in there, just try going back to
timedate.cpland changing the servers to one of these:
1 2 3 4 5 6
ts1.aco.net nist1-la.WiTime.net ntp.alaska.edu utcnist2.colorado.edu tick.ucla.edu tick.usno.navy.mil
For me, the issue was resolved on the last step. After changing the time server, it worked right away!
Update 2018-02: The PDC should configure time like:
1 2 3 4
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:'0.pool.ntp.org, 1.pool.ntp.org, 2.pool.ntp.org' /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update net stop w32time && net start w32time w32tm /resync /rediscover w32tm /query /status
- All other domain computers should be:
1 2 3
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update w32tm /resync /rediscover net stop w32time && net start w32time
But I wanted to include a little more info here.
First, make sure port 123 UDP is open for the server.
Second, if you run
w32tm /monitorit should say
NTP -0in a domain environment.
