Hello,

I am trying to set up a time server so all my clients will synch with our
DC. We are running a 2003 AD. Does anyone know of a good article, or
solution? So far I have no had much luck with what Ive found on the Inet.

Thanks

Hello Jeff,

On the DC with PDCEmulator role(check with "netdom query fsmo" in a command
prompt) run follwoing command:
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:PEERS /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update

With "PEERS" you can set the time source, either DNS name (time.windows.com)
or an ip address from a reliable time source.

Here you can find some of them:
http://www.pool.ntp.org/


If some clients still have problems run on them:
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update

After that run:
net stop w32time
net start w32time

Best regards

Meinolf Weber
