Something to take into account if you are upgrading your AD infrastructure to Windows 2008/R2 and adding a new DC to hold the FSMO roles:
“If you have changed the FSMO roles to another machine please run on the new PDC Emulator:
- w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:PEERS /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update
With "PEERS" you can set the time source, either DNS name or an ip address from a reliable time source. Here you can find some of them: http://www.pool.ntp.org/.
On the old PDC Emulator run:
- w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /reliable:no /update
- After that run: net stop w32time and then net start w32time”
