Secondary DC is not syncing time with Primary DC?

By dandaman2234 ·
Hi All,

I'm working with a mixed domain (W2K3 and W2K with a Server 2003 R2 Std SP2 Primary Domain Controller and a server 2008 Std SP2 Secondary Domain Controller. The PDC is the domain's time server but unfortunately the SDC won't sync its time with the PDC. Is there a way in which I could configure the SDC to properly pick the time up from the PDC?? Does W2K8 have a problem with W2K3 being the time server??

Thanks in advance.

Time is typically the easy part

Fiddling with W32tm /config commands typically does it.

W32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:"<ip addresses>"
W32tm /config /reliable:yes
W32tm /config /update
W32tm /resync
Net stop w32time
Net start w32time

Did your time service maybe die on the server?
