Time synchronization problem

Post by Luba » Tue, 13 May 2003 23:11:44



Please, help to understand W32time service.

Our network includes ten workstations and W2000 Advanced Server with AD.
I'm keeping to get Error 62. I think the reason is that, by default, W32time
uses domain hierarchy based synchronization - it means there should be an
external time source and W32time cannot find this source. Is it right?  Is
it possible to setup time service without external synchronization? I'm
thinking about W32time registry entries, but are there any other ways to do
this?
Thanks.
Luba.

 
 
 

Time synchronization problem

Windows 2000 time synch does indeed use a hierarchy and
the PDC in the root domain should synch with an external
time source (or an authoritative internal time source
which itself synchs with an external clock).

The simplest approach is to allow w2k to synch using the
hierarchy and to define an external time source on the
root domain PDC. You need only make changes on 1 machine.

I suggest you read up on time synch here:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/howitworks/se
curity/wintimeserv.asp

The hierarchy is explained along with best practices.

HTH,

1. Time synchronization problems with Parent and Child Domains

I guess parent-child problems can creep up anywhere...
I have set-up a Forest (parent) with and AD server.  I
then set up a tree in the forest (child domain).  Upon
completion of this task I have been unable to sigh on into
the parent domain from the child domain with the following
error message. "There is a time difference between the
client and server." I have set up the parent AD server to
sync with the us navy time server, and set the child AD
server to look at the parent (which it should have done by
default).  If anyone has any information on how to get
this to work, it would be greatly appreciated.  The
website does not seem to define this problem well.

Thank you,
Todd
