At a command prompt on the server machine, enter

w32tm /register

(IF already registered as a service, this may say some error to that effect, 'already registered'.)

w32tm /monitor /domain:time.gov

[or just w32tm /monitor ]

then enter

w32tm /resync

If this doesn't work for some odd reason, e.g. 'time service not running', then start the time service in the Services app, and make sure it is set to Start: Automatically or the like, and be sure to click on OK to close that sheet after making those settings, to save the settings. And/or do this command

net start w32time

then do the above commands.

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
