Post subject: w32time issue without solution yet
Reply to herba98 Reply with quote





Hi friends, I'm searching on the web about the w32time service issue
but until now I haven't found a valid solution, right now I have a lot
of Error/Warning on my system log (Event ID 29, Source w32time)
mentioning ntpclient with can't obtain the time. Can I disable this
service? or where can I review which are the sources of time
configured?

thanks

HB

Hello herba98,

Windows time service issue???

According to your description and the event viewer errors it sounds that
you are running a domain environment where the machines trying to sync to
a time server which doesn't response.

So please give some more info about the network and if it is a domain or
workgroup environment and on which machines/OS version you have the errors.
In a domain the time service is highly important.

Best regards

Meinolf Weber

I'm having a similar situation with one of our member servers that we've
virtualized ... Havent found the solution yet, but everything works fine,
so I decided not to fix something that isn't broken (not really, anyways)
:-)

If that is a member server or workstation on a domain, you shouldn't
disable the service because Kerberos depends on time synchronization to
successfully authenticate clients...

If you have your server/workstation set up to sync with time server on the
internet, make sure your DNS settings are correct and the client can
resolve the host name correctly eg. if your time server is something like
time.windows.com

If you have your server/workstation set up to sync with a server in your
network, make sure the firewall doesn't block UDP 123 ...

You can review your configuration by going into the command prompt and
typing:
w32tm /? ---> this will give you help on the command syntax.
w32tm /monitor ---> this will give you some info ...

If you're running XP or W2k3 server you can try this also:
net time /querysntp

This has been deprecated in Win7, and when you try to run it it will point
you to the w32tm command I mentioned before ...

HB,

Which server are you getting the Evnet ID 29 on? Here is some info on this
event.
www.eventid..../d....phase=1

Basically, the way it works in an AD domain environment, the PDC Emulator is
configured to time sync with an outside reliable time server, then all
machines in a domain will sync time from the PDC Emulator. To sync time from
the outside, port UDP 123 needs to be opened and traffic allowed to the PDC
Emulator. By default, everything else will work.

If you tried to alter it through the registry or GPOs, it can make
troubleshooting difficult. If you parse back in this and the AD newsgroup,
you can see the sort of problems that arise when trying to configure the
time service from its default settings by using the registry. One word of
advise, do not configure the time service using the net time command.

Please take a look at my blog on how it works, configure and troubleshoot
the Windows time service. I hope you find it helpful.
