We have a LAN PDC and server with NTP service. How do I setup the clients running Windows 8 Professional Edition, to use the local server NTP and not use an external source like "time.windows.com"?
I am missing some important knowledge since this must be a very common occurance.
Thank You!

Can you go to adjust time and manually enter the servers address.

I tried to do what you suggested. All Windows 8 offers is a few standard choices in a drop-box menu. I could not locate a place to type in my own NTP server.

Normally an option in group policy for NTP Server, normally time.windows.com,0x1

Not sure for W8.
