    Configure the Windows Time service on the PDC emulator in the Forest Root Domain:

    Configure a client computer for automatic domain time synchronization:

  • Do you have any time related errors in the event log? By default, all computers should sync time with PDCE.  Check your PDCE for any errors. 

     

    Have you tired w32tm /resync command?

  • Hello,

    in a domain the DC with the PDCEmulator role is the time source all other DCs sync with that one and the other domain machines choose one available DC.

    Socheck with "netdom query fsmo" the DC with the PDCEmulator role and configure it to an external or other reliable time source, not domain member:

    w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:PEERS /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update

    With "PEERS" you can set the time source, either DNS name (time.windows.com) or an ip address from a reliable time source.

    Here you can find some of them:
    http://www.pool.ntp.org/
