Reset NTP configuration on Domain Controllers

Hi all,

Not’s the first time I write talking about how to configure time service on Domain Controllers. With the below actions, you can reset time service settings and configure it to find the NTP Server (PDC is the best practice to configure as corporate NTP Server).

So let’s reset the time service on the non-PDCs back to their default:

net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time

Then set the non-PDCs to sync to the default time hierarchy:

w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update
net stop w32time
net start w32time

To check the status use:

w32tm /query /status
