[Answering] Configure PDC Emulator as time server for network

Posted on: Jun 28 2014 Category :Windows > Windows Server General Views: 1074 | Subscribe


We have a test lab that is completely isolated from all other networks. We want our PDC emulator to be the time server for all Windows, LINUX and VMWARE ESXi servers.

We configured the PDC emulator with the following changes:

win32tm /config /syncfromflag:No /reliable:yes

Modified following registry value

HKLMSystemCurrentControlSetServicesW32TimeConfigAnnounceFlags=0x5

Windows boxes seem fine with this, but none of our Linux or VMWare boxes appear to be able to sync with the domain controller. I also tried pointing them at one of the other domain controllers we have never modified.

We have no problems with this when we do this on our production network. Is there something special we have to do when working in an isolated environment?
