Time Sync Problems

Howdy Folks,
I had a lot of issues with the Time Sync in few customers environments then i decided to write this post.

As you know, the time can not be longer than 5 minutes between domain controllers and other devices. If it is difference longer then we have a big issue.
In my situation, The customer’s SAP server’s time difference DC’s time. Then clients can not run the report from the SAP Server . The users got error messages.
I usually check manuel from the official Microsoft site the it helped me many times
You can follow this commands then i hope you will be success.

1-Check the source time server
w32tm /query /status

2-Time resynchronization with another NTP
w32tm /resync
w32rm /resync /rediscover /nowait

3- Force the computer’s time to sync with the DC or specific time server.
net time \\ES.local or 10.x.x.x /set /y

4- Then i also run the folloing comands
net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time
