Time running ahead by 2 hours in Windows Server 2019(ADDC)

Hi Team,

Our ADDC server machine's timezone is set to UTC+2. But the time is still showing 2 hours ahead of the actual "UTC+2" time. Saw the same issue reported by multiple users. Manually setting the correct time is not working as the time is reset to the above-mentioned wrong time once the machine is restarted. Also can we set to update the server time(once corrected) on all connected endpoints in the domain? Please advise. Thanks.

Regards,
Anand R Menon

    Is this the PDC emulator or another domain controller?

    On the PDC emulator you could

    w32tm /unregister
    net stop w32time
    w32tm /register
    net start w32time
    w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:<ntp ip address> /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update
    net stop w32time
    net start w32time
    then check
    w32tm /query /source
    w32tm /query /configuration

    Glad to hear, all members should be using NT5DS domain time.

    Some general info

    w32tm /unregister
    net stop w32time
    w32tm /register
    net start w32time
    w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update
    net stop w32time
    net start w32time
    then check
    w32tm /query /source
    w32tm /query /configuration
