Okay so I've tried stopping/registering the win32tm service on this
Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Computer.
C:\Users\Administrator>net stop w32time The Windows Time service is stopping. The Windows Time service was stopped successfully. C:\Users\Administrator>w32tm /unregister The following error occurred: Access is denied. (0x80070005) C:\Users\Administrator>w32tm /unregister W32Time successfully unregistered. C:\Users\Administrator>w32tm /register W32Time successfully registered. C:\Users\Administrator>net start w32time The Windows Time service is starting. The Windows Time service was started successfully. (Source : http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverDS/thread/9bdfc2cc-4775-4435-8868-57d214e1e3ba/)
And I get this error from the
Date and Time,
Internet Time tab (After also following the steps here).
I've even tried the Atomic Time Clock Worldtimeserver and I get the error
The following error occurred: The specified module could not be found. (0x8007007E).
I've also disabled the
Windows Firewall, that might of been blocking the synchronization.
I've done a file scan with
sfc /scannow that came back with no errors.
C:\Users\Administrator>sfc /scannow Beginning system scan. This process will take some time. Beginning verification phase of system scan. Verification 100% complete. Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations. C:\Users\Administrator>
But I'm not having much luck. Is there anyway lo possibly solve this? or is the time.windows.com servers unsupported? because the software is from 2008? (I really don't know :/), My ping result to
C:\Users\Administrator>ping time.windows.com Pinging time.microsoft.akadns.net [188.8.131.52] with 32 bytes of data: Request timed out. Request timed out. Request timed out. Request timed out. Ping statistics for 184.108.40.206: Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss),
