Using a Reliable Time Source
A reliable time source is especially important if you use Windows Servers with Active Directory (AD). All servers and systems in an AD environment should be running on exactly the same time.
We recommend that you use an internet time source on your first Domain Controller, otherwise known as the PDC emulator. You can also use this setting on additional domain controllers.
Sections in this article:
Run the following command from an Administrative command prompt, on your Domain Controller(s).
net stop w32time
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:"0.uk.pool.ntp.org 1.uk.pool.ntp.org"
w32tm /config /reliable:yes
net start w32time
PCs and member servers in a domain should automatically use time from domain controllers. If they do not, and appear to be using time.windows.com or other default time settings, use the commands below.
net stop w32time
Use the following commands:
w32tm /query /configuration - This enables you to see what NTP settings you are using.
w32tm /query /status - This enables you to see the current performance of the time service, including its connection to the NTP server.
If the w32tm /resync command faults, or the w32tm /query /status shows that the system is still using a CMOS clock, then the NTP server is likely blocked.
Untick the Time Synchronisation option under Integration Services, in the virtual machines settings.
