I have a customer that has configured the following ntp settings on the Default Domain Policy GPO resulting so that every machine in the domain get this setting. What I want to do (and I guess is best practice also) is to have only the PDC Emulator sync to external ntp server, and have all the machines use the PDC Emulator for time.
My question is then, what happens if I just remove the settings from the GPO, configure manually ntp settings for the PDC Emulator to get time from external source. Will all other machines automatically get the time from the PDC Emulator server ? I know this is default in a domain, but will it go back to default ?
One other thing, If I click the registry setting under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters I get the following below. I thought that it should have been NTP and not NT5DS ?
From RSOP I can see that the policy is applied.
Any comments ? :)
Thanks for any reply
