    Server has wrong time

    Noticed today that the FRDC has the wrong time. Its 5 mins fast and so all PCs have wrong time on them!

    Have checked server and getting error 29 saying its configured to acquire time from one or more time sources but none are available.

    I have tried setting the ntp servers manually and also trying the microsoft online fix it tool but that doesnt work. Also tried pinging these ntp servers on name and IP but getting no response so wondering if firewall issue? all our servers go through county so may need to speak to them?

    Don't use ping, chances are it's blocked.

    Just try it and see if it works.

    Have you tried resetting your main server manually? This would at least sync everyone to roughly the right time.

    Contact your ISP to request the details of their time server if they have blocked your outbound attempts.

    Do you have a firewall between your server and the LEA?

    Your master DC for time (the PDC/PDC emulator by default) will be the one with a ntp running. You can query it with the w32 command in the cmd console:
    w32tm /monitor

    That should show you which of the DCs is the master time controller in your domain.

    There are some other options for the w32tm command which are handy for checking the sync etc...
    A lot of the settings can be set with group policy.

    The server is the master DC for time - all others point to it with the w32tm /monitor command
