Windows Time Service (NTP) Slew mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • I got a server (Windows 2008) that is part of a Workgroup (not connected to a Domain).  I noticed that it had a time lag of 2 minutes (2 minutes behind)   It is running a critical application and the vendor recommended that I should point it to an NTP server have it run in slew mode.

    I have a Windows 2012R2 Domain Controller, which has an NTP service running.  Can I have the workgroup Windows Time service point to this server?  And if so, How can I make it run in slew mode ?

  • Hi,

    Can I have the workgroup Windows Time service point to this server? 

    Yes, we can, we could use it as a standard NTP server. However, I would suggest you follow the following article to verify the current settings of Windows Time Service.

    And if so, How can I make it run in slew mode?

    According to my knowledge, Windows Time Service has no such settings about slew mode. I would suggest you contact the application vendor for further verify to see if it compatible with the application.

    For more information about windows time service settings, you may refer to the article below:
