Force time update on Win7 clients

I'm looking for a script that would force my Win 7 laptop domain clients to get the time from my Win 2008 R2 AD controller. I want to run this through my KBOX.

Thanks, folks!

dude this doesn't need scripting or pushing though a kbox it just needs configuring on the domain controller and the settings should proliferate through the network eventually and automatically keep in sync.

I've just gone through this on our domain running server 2003 domain controllers and the time has synced between all our OSs - 2000, XP, server 2003, server 2008, vista, server 2008 r2 and win7

There is loads on the web on this here's two links i found useeful recently:-



As far as I'm aware the time service hasn't changed significantly and if these articles don't help (i just raided my bookmarks for ya) technet.microsoft.com for the latest on these topics...

yeah i got panicky after a day when it still didn't appear to be syncing but after a few w32tm /start stop resync commands it eventually got it.

give it a good couple of days [:D]

This might have been the magic command that kickstarted the sloths on the network (from that spiceworks post's comments)

If you want to force time synchronisation open a command prompt and type in:

w32tm /resync /rediscover and then press ENTER
