Domain controllers not advertising as a time server - Preparing to migrate SYSVOL

Server 2012 R2 DC, Server 2016 DC.

Forest level 2008 R2.

Running this cmd: Dcdiag /e /test:sysvolcheck /test:advertising

Shows both DC's aren't advertising as a time server.

Ran the following cmd's on the 2012 R2 DC and no change:

net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time

The AD replication tool from Microsoft shows no errors.

This is in preparation of migrating SYSVOL from FRS to DFSR

w32tm /unregister removes the w32time service, so stopping it after the unregister command is kinda pointless ...

Running services when deleted are simply marked for deletion and don't actually disappear until stopped. Always a good idea to do the research before posting something you don't know.
