Syncronizing time in the domain

davidt
I have an SBS2003 PDC and several dozen XP Pro clients. My server gets the correct time from a couple of sources, that is no problem. But the clients are all over the clock - I thought they received their time from the PDC, automatically.
Anybody know what I'm doing wrong?

    It could be issues on the clients, it could be an incorrect setting in group policy. It could also be that the server isn;t synching consistently itself.

    Try running net time on the server and on the workstations and see what they tell you.

    as a workaround, if you add this to a logon script, it will force the synch

    net time \\%servername% /set /yes

    I'll check group policy first, but that script is helpful - thanks
