I work on a standalone network that has 3 domain controllers all running Server 2008 r2. Two of the servers are physical (DC1 / DC2) and one is virtual (DC3).
I want all my systems to refer to DC1 as the time server and I want DC1 to refer to itself. DC1 cannot connect to the internet so I simply want to use its local cmos clock.
Using w32tm commands on DC1 or changing the registry, how can I do this? At the moment DC1 is setting its clock to the time on DC3 (the vm) and DC3 is setting its clock to DC1.
I can find plenty of instruction on how to set the clock to a different server, but none on how to set the clock to the server it is on. Can I use 127.0.0.1 as the target IP address with
I don't want my domain controllers to get out of sync!
