I am trying to apply a group policy to have all clients in the domain to point to the DC for net time sync. I tried making a timesync.vbs file with the command 'net time /set server1' and applied the script to the startup area, but that did not work. I tried a few other things, but what I have learned in the past few days tells me that was pointless. I am a group policy idiot, please respond in simple terms with clear instructions. Network guys are not meant to do this systems stuff without proper training!!!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi gforsythe,

The command line statement is
“net time /setsntp:servername or IP Address”. Maybe you can incorporate that into your script or put in a batch file to run at login.

Hope that is useful,
Dave

    I'm also in the Learning Curve here, but I believe you would just configure the NTP Client settings in Default Domain Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Windows Time Service > Time Providers.
