Re: Time source

Hello MikMik,

Run "net time /querysntp" (without the quotes) from a command prompt, should
show you the time source.

Re: Time source

Hello MikMik,

On your DC which has to be the PDCEmulator, normally the first installed
DC run "net time /setsntpexternal ip or external DNS name like time.windows.com)"

You only have to configure the PDCEmulator in a domain, the other DC's will
get the time from it and clients and members from one of your DC's. That's
the default time configuration.


Best regards
