Configure Windows Time Service
- Type the following commands on PowerShell (elevated):
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:pool.ntp.org /syncfromflags:MANUAL
Now the Windows Server 2016 is an NTP client of pool.ntp.org and its time/clock is synced with the NTP pool servers (The server is at the same time the NTP server for other domain client systems).
If your Windows Server 2016 machine is a VM inside Hyper-V, you have to disable time sync. Go to VM settings-> Management-> Integration Services and uncheck Time Synchronization. Otherwise, Windows Server 2016 time/clock will be synced with the Host time/clock.
- Go to the client machines and run the following command on PowerShell to force them to sync their time/clock with the domain controller on the Windows Server 2016.
- You can check the time synchronization status using the following command.
w32tm /query /status
