W32time not updating
Are there any bumper stickers or t-shirts out there that say, “I was using Hyper-V before using Hyper-V was cool? I built my first production system on Hyper-V 2008 R2 not long after it debuted.So, I missed the early-adopter crowd by a couple of years but I’ve definitely been in this for a while.
When it comes to time synchronization, there is corresponding hierarchy of synchronization, where a workstation synchronizes with its local domain, and local domains synchronize with corresponding PDC emulators; at the top of the hierarchy lies the (external hardware clock, router with NTP server, connected to GPS, online NTP server or other).The only problem with sticking with a tech as it grows from infancy is that sometimes things change and you miss out.One of the things that changed on me was the way that time synchronization works between Hyper-V and its guests.Have you noticed that Windows Server clock is not synchronized with external source?I had a case when customer called me that their clock is 5 minutes late.Note, however, that the country zone might not exist for your country, or might contain only one or two timeservers.
If you're using a recent Windows version, you can use the ntp client that is built into the system.
You can easily find the closest mirror to you, in most cases in the same country. , 05.3702315s , 05.3703289s , 05.3720366s , 05.3746750s , 05.3777263s Step 3 type: Step 4 To confirm that time is synchronized type: w32tm /stripchart /computer:/samples:5 /dataonly you will receive output similar to this one: Tracking [1.202].
I have tested this solution on a Windows server 2003 SP2, 2008, 2008R2 and confirm that it works. First you need to discover which server is domain authoritative.
If you just want to synchronise your computers clock to the network, the configuration file (for the ntpd program from the distribution, on any supported operating system - Linux, *BSD, Windows and even some more exotic systems) is really simple: The 0, 1, 2 and 3names point to a random set of servers that will change every hour.
Make sure your computer's clock is set to something sensible (within a few minutes of the 'true' time) - you could use $ ntpq -pn remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset jitter ============================================================================== 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124 2 u 68 1024 377 158.995 51.220 50.287 *126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 2 u 191 1024 176 79.245 3.589 27.454 -129.1 184.108.40.206 3 u 766 1024 377 22.302 -2.928 0.508 , etc) will usually return IP addresses for servers in or close to your country. You can also use the continental zones (For example europe, north-america, oceania or ntp.org), and a country zone (like in Switzerland) - for all these zones, you can again use the 0, 1 or 2 prefixes, like 0org.
The NTP Pool is generally very high quality, but it is a service run by volunteers in their spare time.
