NT Network Time Registry

By jgreer ·
I am trying to make all of our clients sync their times with our network server. But none of the clients are able to due to registry restrictions. What is the key I need to change for them to have this permission?

You may download a Windows features which is provided in Windows 2000 and above. You install a Master Time server like a proxy server and then setup primary server, PDC/BDC'S. Then the clients are installed which download from the primaries. (Atomic Clock) <-Master (Atomic Clock sync'd - your choice of server) <- Primaries <-Clients.

This is an NT/2000/XP service called the Windows Time Service.

You can find the .ini file as well as the executable on filesearching.com as a search forw32time

This doesn't really address my question. The network will not let the clients update their times.

Default Domain users don't have this rights. But you can give them this rights: use "User Manager for domain" and connect with change domain (\\ComputerName) to local users and groups of computer. In Policies\Users rights add in <change the system time> Domain Users group.

After that use:
net time \\ServerName /set /y
in login script.

The network will let your clients update their times. It is the taskbar interface clock that isn't at the current time in your situation update. Like Florinel stated, you can give them the rights to change the clock in the taskbar, but if you use the service, the Windows Time Service checks with your primary time server on your domain at set intervals and sets the clock automatically for them. Not that 2000 and above comes with this service, but must be enabled.

Hope this helps...
