    Ive tried, followed guides but failed!! To simply set the clock!!!!

    We have always used a .bat script to set the clock from one of the Domain Controllers.
    Reading about this is apparently not recommended and was used in W2000
    time.bat - "Set time \\dc1 /set /yes"
    Can anyone please talk me through the correct way to set the clock with Group Policy.?

    Thanks in advance !!

    Latest failed effort:
    System/Windows Time Service/Time Providers
    Policy Setting
    Configure Windows NTP Client Enabled
    NtpServer DC1.wolverley.local
    Type NTP
    CrossSiteSyncFlags 2
    ResolvePeerBackoffMinutes 15
    ResolvePeerBackoffMaxTimes 7
    SpecialPollInterval 3600
    EventLogFlags 0

    Not using Group policy, but

    One of the schools I picked up recently had the server referencing itself and the clients working from micrsofts' time server.

    To fix this I did the following.

    On the FSMO role holder

    Code:
    w32tm /configure /manualpeerlist:your.ntp.time.server.here,0x1 /syncfromflags:MANUAL
    net stop w32time
    net start w32time
    w32tm /resync
    where your.ntp.time.server.here is the one provided by LEA/county or a trusted one from the web, pool.ntp.org etc

    On the clients

    Code:
    W32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update
    net stop w32time
    net start w32time
    W32tm /resync /rediscover
    Check clients with
    Code:
    w32tm /monitor
    BoX

    time.bat should read "net time" and it will still work.

    Right...
    I now have all desktops syncing perfectly to our PDC... I have also manually set the servers to correct their time.
    Thanks for all the help!!
