OK, stupid question for the day
How do I setup a 2008R2DC to be the domain time server? I have the link to the MS KB article and I have the link to the pool.ntp.org site with a whole bunch of addresses I am supposed to use…but for the life of me its not penetrating my skull.
Can someone break it down for me in far more simpler terms
I even downloaded the ‘Fix it for me’ tool from MS in that KB article – the external one, and tried cutting and pasting the top two server x.pool.ntp.org links into the fix it for me wizard and it didn’t work. I am positive I am just overlooking one small crucial detail to make it sync in
As always, any and all help is greatly appreciated
Firstly, your DC’s ARE network time servers by default, so you don’t need to ‘enable’ that as a feature or anything.
All you’re trying to do is synchronise it with an external time server. To do that, type the following in a command prompt:
W32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist: 0.uk.pool.ntp.org,1.uk.pool.ntp.org,2.uk.pool.ntp.org W32tm /config /reliable:yes W32tm /config /update W32tm /resync
Changing the NTP servers to whatever you want, of course.
