- Suggestion 1: Have the PDC emulator on your domain, sync with a reliable time server (louie.udel.edu is about as reliable as they get) and then the rest of your domain machines, including other domain controllers and servers should be configured by default to sync with the PDC emulator. Stand-alone machines can point right to louie.udel.edu in the time/clock settings on the workstation.
- Suggestion 2: Sync servers and domain controllers to time.nist.gov, tick.usno.navy.mil, and tock.usno.navy.mil in that order.
