    Time Discrepancy

    Just a random question, what's the maximum time discrepancy between a Server and PC before Windows starts complaining that it can't sync up and correct the clients time and gets a bit wobbly about logging on to the domain.

    It is 5 mins. There are policies you can set so it keeps everything in sync to avoid these problems. Here's how to configure it on 2008 Server:

    Code:
    @echo off
    
    net stop w32time
    
    w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:ENTERNTPSERVER
    
    w32tm /config /reliable:yes
    
    net start w32time
    
    w32tm /query /peers
    
    PAUSE
