AD DS : PDCe Time Server Configuration
Use the following script to configure your PDCe to sync its time using an external time source:
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:”tock.usno.navy.mil,0x9 tick.usno.navy.mil,0xa” /syncfromflags:MANUAL
w32tm /config /update
This will perform all of the required registry changes under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters without having to actually modify the registry.
Check the system event log for Event ID 35, W32Time ‘The time service is now synchronizing the system time with the time source tock.usno.navy.mil.’ entries once complete.
