How to run Active Directory time synchronization using the w32tm command

In this DrillBit? Video, learn how to run Active Directory time synchronization. In Active Directory, your clients need to be within five minutes of the Active Directory Domain Controller. Brian uses the w32tm command to show what the time differential is between the primary Domain Controller and your clients. For more training visit us online at http://interfacett.com In Active Directory, we know that our clients need to be within five minutes of the Active Directory Domain Controller. Here is a quick solution using the w32tm command that will show you what your time differential is between your primary domain controller and your clients. Use the name or IP address of the primary domain controller and add 'samples'. The samples are the number of times this will run the AD time sync per client. Once activated, you can now begin to see that they are within a thousandth of a second of the primary domain controller. The chart shows that they're in the middle which is good. If the chart displays the performance to the left, this would mean that the time synchronization is slow, if it displays on the right it would indicate fast clock.
