  • Open an elevated cmd prompt and your Root Domain PDC.

    run: w32tm /query /source (Ensure it doesn't say CMOS or Free Running System Clock)

    If it does, check the registry (HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters)

    What are the values for TYPE and NTPServer?

    You might be trying to pull from a device which you no longer have basic connectivity to. (Port 123).

    Let me know!
