Losing connections on 2k workstation

By jsarinana ·
Even view shows this error what's going on help anyone:
Because of repeated network problems, the time service has not been able to find a domain controller to synchronize with for a long time. To reduce network traffic, the time service will wait 960 minutes before trying again. No synchronization will take place during this interval, even if network connectivity is restored. Accumulated time errors may cause certain network operations to fail. To tell the time service that network connectivity has been restored and that it should resynchronize, execute "w32tm /s" from the command line.

Losing connections on 2k workstation

by McKayTech In reply to Losing connections on 2k ...

I've seen this on my network as well and it happens to Win2K devices on an NT4 network or domain. Time is a big deal to Windows2000 because the Kerberos security tickets are time-stamped so it installs the W32Time service by default (as opposed to NT where you had to install Timeserv or a third-party utility to keep the time in sync).

But here's the rub: Timeserv is not fully SNTP compliant so it can't communicate with W32Time. So first you'll have to install W32Time on your NT4 PDC and then follow the instructions in article Q258059 (on TechNet) to get your W2K workstation to start syncing with it.
