To insure that date and time are synchronized thoughout your organization, the W32Time service has been integrated into Window 2000.
The W32Time service entries are located at:
Legend: VN/DT = Value Name : Data Type Desc. = Description Value = Values VN/DT AvoidTimeSyncOnWan : REG_DWORD Desc. Synchronize with a computer that is at a different site. Value 0 = Site is ignored \[default\] 1 = Do NOT synchronize with a time source that is at a different site VN/DT GetDcBackoffMaxTimes : REG_DWORD Desc. The maximum number of times to double the backoff interval when successive attempts to find a domain controller fails. An event is logged every time a full wait occurs. Value 0 = The wait between attempts is minimum and no event is logged 7 = \[default\] VN/DT GetDcBackoffMinutes : REG_DWORD Desc. The starting number of minutes to wait before looking for a domain controller, if the last attempt failed. Value 15 = \[default\] VN/DT LocalNTP : REG_DWORD Desc. Start the SNTP server. Value 0 = Don't start the SNTP server, unless this computer is a domain controller\[default\] 1 = Always start the SNTP server VN/DT NtpServer : REG_SZ Desc. Stores the value from NET TIME /SETSNTP Value Blank by default. Sample data value: 188.8.131.52 VN/DT Period : REG_DWORD Desc. Control how often the time service synchronizes. Value 0 = once a day 65535, every 2 days 65534, every 3 days 65533, every week (7 days) 65532, every 45 minutes until 3 good synchronizations occur, then once every 8 hours (3 per day) \[default\] 65531, every 45 minutes until 1 good synchronization occurs, then once every day Number of times per day NOTE: Period can be a type REG_SZ with special values: BiDaily, every 2 days Tridaily, every 3 days Weekly, every week (7 days) SpecialSkew, every 45 minutes until 3 good synchronizations occur, then once every 8 hours (3 per day) \[default\] DailySpecialSkew, every 45 minutes until 1 good synchronization occurs, then once every day VN/DT ReliableTimeSource : REG_DWORD Desc. Does this computer have a reliable time. Value 0 = No \[default\] 1 = This computer has reliable time (this is only useful on a domain controller) VN/DT Type : REG_SZ Desc. How does this computer synchronizes. Value Nt5DS = synchronize to domain hierarchy or manually configured source \[default\] NTP = synchronize to manually configured source NoSync = do NOT synchronize time VN/DT Adj : REG_DWORD Desc. Maintains computer clock information between reboots. Do NOT change. VN/DT msSkewPerDay : REG_DWORD Desc. Maintains computer clock information between reboots. Do NOT change.You must shutdown and restart for any changes to take effect.
