    but it is not working in ADFS server

    Please advise

    To configure a client computer for automatic domain time synchronization

    1. Open a Command Prompt.

  • ADFS servers are members of the domain. As such, they are using the domain hierarchy to sync their clock. So it is not set to a specific source and could be any DC of the forest (the selection process is described here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc773013.aspx (section: Time Source Selection).

  • Hello all,

    One of our ADFS server is showing local source time source instead of DC or NTP

    Can you tell me method to connect the time source of this ADFS to server NTP or DC

    Thanks in advance
