  • Hi arvind_snp,

    How To Synchronize the Time with the Windows Time Service in Windows XP?

    With Windows XP, the Windows Time service automatically synchronizes your computer's internal clock with a server’s clock in the network. The time source for this synchronization can be an Active Directory domain or to a workgroup.

    When the computers are part of a workgroup, you can configure the computer to synchronize the Internet time. To do that, go to Date and Time Properties

    If the computers belong to an Active Directory domain, the Windows Time service configures itself automatically by using the Windows Time service that is available on domain controllers. The Windows Time service configures a domain controller in its domain as a reliable time source and synchronizes itself periodically with this source. You can modify or overwrite these settings, depending on your specific needs. Check "Automatically synchronize an Internet time server". You may select a time server. Then click Update Now.

    To synchronize the time on a computer on a domain, Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt. Type w32tm /resync, and then press ENTER.
