  • 1: Check Min and Max PollInterval

    w32tm /query /configuration /verbose

    2: Time-Service source in System log. Set custom logging by adding regkeys

    w32tm /debug {/disable | {/enable /file:<name>/size:<bytes>/entries:<value>[/truncate]}}</value></bytes></name>

    3. If set to NTP and the NTP server is unreachable, it will rely on it's local clock

    w32tm /query /status /verbose
