How to manually set Time Servers?

Created 2001-03-19 by Rainer Gerhards.

Most Windows 2000 systems  need not to be manually set to use a time server. Network time is automatically distributed inside the forest. However, to manually set a time server, use the

net time /setsntp:<server-name>

command. To verify the time server is working, issue the

w32tm -once -v

command. Use

net time /querysntp

to find out which servers are currently configured for a given system. 

There are a number of reliable time sources publicly accessible on the Internet.
