    LancsNGFL block access to external NTP (amongst other things).

    Oh that old chessnut, one of the reasons we dumped CLEO was their port blocking.

    OK - ta Geoff - now the reason for doing this is one of my servers is not keeping good time and we all turned up to canteen for toast 5 mins early because of this!

    (all my clients have a net use time thingy startup batch file that syncs them to the server)

    But now I'm struggling to find where to configure this on the w2k3 server - surely it must be easy peasy??

    You don't use AD do you? surely you can just right click on the time and set it under internet time? I think its on when joined to a domain this is removed.

    In an AD environment you generally setup the NTP settings on a GPO somewhere. Generally I use a GPO tied to the Domain Controllers Container.

    If it's just a single server setup then just set it manually:

    Code:
    net time /setsntp:uk.pool.ntp.org
    and restart the w32time service.

    Code:
    net stop w32time && net start w32time
    you can check its working via

    Code:
    net time /querysntp

    @ChrisH and @Geoff I stuck this in a bat file and ran it and it updated my server time within 30 secs
    Code:
    w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:ntp0.lancsngfl.ac.uk,0x8 /syncfromflags:MANUAL /reliable:yes 
    
    
    rem All you need to do then is stop and restart the service: and give it a chance to refresh it
    
    net stop w32time && net start w32time 
    
    rem If you want to force a refresh you can use the command:
    
    rem w32tm /resync /nowait 
    rem pause
    Am I finished now or will I have to stick this as a server logon script?

    Once you've set it once you're done.

    There is only your clients to check as well after that although by default they should be fine. See the last part of my blog post about the client end.

    I already sync my clients at logon with a simple net use \\server WPKG package - if was the server drifting that was my problem
