SHORT NOTES FOR PERSONNEL REFERENCE ONLY


Command to check time on remote Windows PC.

all commands should be executed using administrative privileged account.

net time \\REMOTEPC

 

Adding external NTP server on DC

# Set NTP on DC / on server

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:"59.106.180.168,0x1 62.201.215.14,0x1 "

w32tm /config /reliable:yes

net stop w32time && net start w32time

 

Command for client side windows , to force update time from DC

I added this file in GP so that every computer on reboot is forced to update time via server

# For client
net time \\DC_SERVER /set /y

 

Using PSTOOLS to execute command on remote PC.

# run command on remote computer.
PsExec.exe \\$1 -u DOMAIN\ADMIN -p PASS cmd "/c net time \\DC_SERVER /set /y"

 

Force client update from your admin PC forcefully.

I sued following script / batch file [named setrtime.bat] to manually update time on remote pc via remote, and show before/after time.

@echo off
cls
echo Current time of %1
echo -------------------------
net time \\%1
echo -------------------------
PsExec.exe \\%1 -u DOMAIN\ADMIN -p PASS cmd "/c net time \\DC_SERVER /set /y"
echo -------------------------
echo Current time of %1 AFTER CHANGING
net time \\%1

now use it like

netrtime.bat REMOTEPCNAME
