I tried to use this article:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;216734

to synchronize the Windows XP client with the time on the Windows 2000
Domain Controller. But when I typed in w32tm -s I received back the
following error:

The command -s is unknown.

So I did w32tm /? and find there is a parameter called /soft but it says it
is "Not useful."

What would be useful to synchronize the Windows XP client's time with the
Windows 2000 domain controller? Thanks.

w32tm /resync should resync to the domain time server

No it didn't. What was returned was Sending resync command to local
computer... Could you please explain the steps necessary to use the Windows
2000 Domain Controller for Windows XP's Time Server? I tried to follow the
steps in this article:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314054/

under the section "Configuring the Windows Times Service to use an External
Source." I then found this article:

http://www.wilsonmar.com/1clocks.htm

and would have liked to use this command:

w32tm -once -test -v

to convince myself all is well. But this doesn't work in Windows XP. So is
there an equivalent set of paramters in Windows XP?

After running w32tm /resync check the system log with event viewer. There
will be an entry telling you which server the local computer synched with.
Here are a some links explaining how it all works.

Yes I did that. But when I type in w32tm /resync what is returning is
Sending resync command to loacal computer. I don't think that is right.

It is if you want the local computer to update it's time. There is no need for this as it happens at logon.

I do have a W32Time event in that log. It occurred yesterday when I was
doing this. It does say synching with my Domain Controller. But when I
followed your suggestion no entry appeared at all in the Event Viewer and it
continues to return "Sending resync command to local computer...The command
completed successfully/"

The commands I gave you which work in Windows 2000:

w32tm -once -test -v

gives a lot of useful information. Anything of this type which I can use in
Windows XP to get the same level of information?

I get an event in the system log every time I run w32tm /resync. W32tm
appears to be a different program in win2k and xp/server2003. XP and server
2003 use NTP while win2k uses SNTP. This discusion has prompted me to do a
lot of investigating. I had no idea xp/2003 was so different from 2000
regarding the time service.

Thanks, Kerry

That what's it doing, though there is no need to as it has already done it. If you send Resynch to the server the server will update its time.

The commands I provided which work in Windows 2000:

w32tm -once -test -v

gives a lot of useful information. Anything of this type which I can use
in
Windows XP to get the same level of information?

I am using Windows XP so asking in the 2000 group is the wrong thing to do.
I do need to get this level of information in Windows XP. Any suggestions?
Let's try it like this:
