Help with pointing PDC to reliable time resource.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm wanting to point my PDC to a more reliable time source, and have network time server off-site I'd like to use for NTP. Can someone tell me if I can just point my PDC to it via internal IP address? From looking around the net use of IP instead of FQDN is suggested for security purposes but always are used to refer to an External Source?!? Also, could I just make this change in the registry? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Setting your PDC to point to an IP for NTP is possible for internal or external IPs. The PDC doesn't care where that IP goes, as long as the routes get him there.

Thanks bob,

So I could use this command on the pdc to set the internal ip?

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:"Netclock IP HERE" /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update
