NTP vs group policy not being applied?


  • Hi guys.
    Configured NTP thru GPO.


    I dont get it why a Domain Controller which is virtualized in Hyperv environment does not take that GPO, instead of that it still gets clock from its host?

    C:\Users\administrator>w32tm /query /status
    Leap Indicator: 0(no warning)
    Stratum: 2 (secondary reference - syncd by (S)NTP)
    Precision: -6 (15.625ms per tick)
    Root Delay: 0.0000000s
    Root Dispersion: 0.0100000s
    ReferenceId: 0x564D5450 (source IP:
    Last Successful Sync Time: 2.1.2017 18:51:51
    Source: VM IC Time Synchronization Provider
    Poll Interval: 6 (64s)

    I know that I could solve this by running: w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update

    on this VM, but why does not GPO do it job?

    I see it does Filter out?

    Please advise.

    With best regards
