System time changes

By ASLtech ·
I have a network with over 20 computers on it and several servers. The system time on all of the computers is 10 minutes slow. Howeverm when I try to change any of them, they automatically change back. The servers are set to the correct time, I have also checked the internet routers. I have even tried to download a clock sync program, but it automatically gets changed back to the wrong time. Please help ASAP. Any help is appreciated.

to set time on a computer NOT the DC to reset local time against the AUTHORITATIVE time server you've got to stop the time service.
use the following to stop the time service
net stop w32time
to set
w32tm -once
to start
net start w32time


to set the time service on the server which will be authoritative for the domain {PDC operations master at the root] use the following

net time /setsntp:<FQDN or IP address of external time service>[suggest you use the IP address]

you need UDP port 123 open to the internet to sync with a external time servers. If you use a router the router has to foward UDP port 123 SNTP traffic to the server which will be the authoritative time service server for the domain.

and note the w32time commands I gave for setting time on client computers DO NOT WORK on W9X client computer [including Windows ME]. they DO NOT support NTP network time service.
