Time Server (ntp) on Forest AD win2008R2

You can setup a Windows 2008 server R2 as a NTP server and a NTP client. You should modify register entries to achive your goal (start>run>regedit)

  • To configure a NTP server, you can do it by proceeding to modify these register entries:

SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32time\Config\AnnounceFlags= 1

SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32time\Parameters\NtpServer = time.windows.com (This will allow the NTP Server to synchronize with time.windows.com, if you don't need that you can let it empty)

SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32time\Parameters\Type = NTP (This is optional and should be enabled if you want your NTP server synchronize with another NTP server)

SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32time\Config\AnnounceFlags= 0
