  • Question

  • Hi,

    we deployed PDC Emulator on a hardware Domain Controller. DCs are based on Windows Server 2016.

    We have exactly the problem which is described in a Microsoft KB article:

    https://support.microsoft.com/fi-fi/help/2638243/when-specialpollinterval-is-used-as-a-polling-interval-the-windows-tim

    Unfortunately Fix-Tool from Microsoft did not solve the issue.

    Microsoft describes also the following workaround in the same article:

    If you want to use "SpecialPollinterval", you should change the following registry:

    Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Config

    Value: MinPollInterval

    Type: DWORD

    To avoid this issue, the registry key should apply conditional expression as follows: Conditional expression: SpecialPollInterval<(2^MinPollInterval)*(HoldPeriod+1)

    Domain member computer has default values:

    • MinPollInterval=10

    • HoldPeriod=5

    But which value for "MinPolInterval" and "HoldPeriod" should be set?

    I am confused.

    Best regards
