Is it possible to synchronize a NT 4 SP6a clients clock/time to an PDC NT 4
Server SP6a clock/time?

Sure thing - I find the easiest way is to create a batch file containing the command net time \\computername. Then schedule the batch to run at your convenience. That way it is automatically synchronized. You can find out more by opening a command prompt and type net time.

Thanks John for the reply ...when I type in the following syntax "NET TIME
[COMPUTERNAME | /DOMAIN[:NAME]] [/SET]" I get the following message "The
filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect." I have tried
various different combination of the "NET TIME" command parameters and still
no synchronization. Does the message mean anything to you?

Never mind....I have got it working...all I did was leave out " |
/DOMAIN[:NAME]] " and it worked. I did add a "/Y" and the end so I wouldn't
get prompted to set the time.
