TIME ZONE issues in Cloud Deploy

I have a problem with the time zone when I go to deploy Azure Stack HCI from the cloud.

User's image

I checked that all the servers were in the usual time zone which in my case is Rome and left the default server with which they synchronize

This immage is ASHCI HOST

This immage is the time setting in Domain Controller

Do you know how to solve the problem? maybe I'm doing something wrong

Thanks for help

    HI @Samuele Provvedi

    The error you are seeing is due to the fact the configured NTP server cannot be resolved in DNS. I highlighted the name which is being attempted from the snip of your error below.

    To fix this issue, manually configure the NTP servers on your hosts using the following command:

    //manually configure the NTP servers on all nodes to a source that can be resolved and reached
    w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:"<NTP servers>" /syncfromflags:manual /update
    //check the status to be sure the source is correct and syncing
    w32tm /query /status.

    For example:

    PS C:\> w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:"time.windows.com" /syncfromflags:manual /update
    The command completed successfully.
    PS C:\> w32tm /query /status
    Leap Indicator: 0(no warning)
    Stratum: 4 (secondary reference - syncd by (S)NTP)
    Precision: -23 (119.209ns per tick)
    Root Delay: 0.0424902s
    Root Dispersion: 7.7926960s
    ReferenceId: 0xA83DD74A (source IP:
    Last Successful Sync Time: 3/20/2024 6:27:36 AM
    Source: time.windows.com
    Poll Interval: 10 (1024s)

    Hope this helps!
