Configure Windows 2008 to 2016 Server Windows Time Service

1. Type the following commands on PowerShell:

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:pool.ntp.org /syncfromflags:MANUAL
Stop-Service w32time
Start-Service w32time

Now the Windows Server 2016 is an NTP client of pool.ntp.org and its time/clock is synced with the NTP pool servers (The server is at the same time the NTP server for other domain client systems).

If your Windows Server 2016 machine is a VM inside Hyper-V, you have to disable time sync. Go to VM settings-> Management-> Integration Services and uncheck Time Synchronization. Otherwise, Windows Server 2016 time/clock will be synced with the Host time/clock.

2. Go to the client machines and run the following command on PowerShell to force them to sync their time/clock with the domain controller on the Windows Server 2016. *They will automatically sync after 15 minutes.

w32tm /resync
