Time Issue

By kevin_h ·
Quite a boring one but I can't figure out why all the clocks on our network are running 10 mins fast. We have Windows 2000 Servers and 2k/XP clients.

It's a problem going back some while now, we have reset the clock on the DC running the Windows Time Service and all other machines synchronise with this. They all show the correct time for a few days but eventually go back to being 10 minutes fast and stay that way.

Any thoughts?

I had a similar problem some time back, but a simple change of time zone in regional settings sorted the issue out.

Here is the base document from Microsoft for setting the time server manually in the registry, but if you just enter the name of the time server in the Server Options area of DHCP and reboot the server it should pull the time signal from the Stratum 2 server you speicfied.

Here is the link to the Stratum 2 servers -

As you know, by default, the W2K boxes look to the Domain Controller first for their time signal.

Let me know if that does not work.
