Flags for NTP server list?`0x1 or 0x9 ?

    Question

  • Hi

    Just want to know how the flags in the NTP server list should be on a domain controller with PDC role on it.

    I have seen both 0x1 & 0x9 on various places, I'm not sure what to choose.

    Example: ntp1.server.com,0x1 or ntp1.server.com,0x9

    Configuring it with this command:

    w32tm /config /LocalClockDispersion:0 /manualpeerlist:"ntp1.server.com,0x1 ntp2.server.com,0x9" /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update


    https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/w32time/2008/02/26/configuring-the-time-service-ntpserver-and-specialpollinterval/


    0x01 SpecialInterval


    0x02 UseAsFallbackOnly


    0x04 SymmatricActive


    0x08 Client

    I understand the first and second option, but what is 0x08 Client? Client as in "Not a server"? Can you stack this options like 0x1 + 0x8 = 0x9 ?

    Should I have 0x8 on a DC with PDC role ?

    Thanks!
