Net Time Problems

Discussion in 'Microsoft Windows 2000 CMD Promt' started by Systems Student, Aug 26, 2003.

  1. Hello,
    I am working on a Windows 2000 image for our public
    ReSEARCH stations in our library and I am having some
    troubles with setting up a time server and having the
    machines sync with it. I can setup a sntp server but when
    I type 'net time' I get the following error:

    System Error 5 has occurred.
    Access is denied.

    I also get the same error if I type 'net time
    \\servername /set', I am running some group policies on
    this machine and I am trying to do this while logged on as
    Administrator. Any help correcting this problem would be
    great. Thanks,

    If you set up a time server, then you don't need the "net time" command for
    Windows 2000 clients. If you are running an AD domain, then they should get
    the time from the DCs automatically. If you're not running an AD domain,
    then you can use

    net time /setsntp:<servername>

    on the client machines to tell them where to get the time from.
