NTP : Configure NTP Client2021/12/01

Configure NTP Client to synchronize time with NTP Server.
NTP Client setting is configured with NTP Server [] by Windows default, so If Internet connected environment computer, time and date is already synchronizing.
Furthermore, if computers are in Active Directory Domain, NTP Client setting is also configured like follows, so generally it does not need to change settings.
* Domain Controlers synchronizes time with PDC in the Domain
* PDC in a Domain synchronizes time with PDC that is in Parent Domain or synchronizes time with other Domain Controlers
* Client Computers synchronizes time with Domain Controler that Clients now logons
In WorkGroup Environment Computers, it's possbile to change default NTP Server to others like follows.

# confirm current synchronization NTP Server
PS C:\Users\Administrator> w32tm /query /source,0x8

# change target NTP Server (replace to your timezone server)
# number means
# 0x01 : SpecialInterval
# 0x02 : UseAsFallbackOnly
# 0x04 : SymmetricActive
# 0x08 : NTP request in Client mode
PS C:\Users\Administrator> Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\w32time\Parameters" -Name "NtpServer" -Value ",0x8" 

# restart Windows Time service
PS C:\Users\Administrator> Restart-Service w32Time 

# re-sync manually
PS C:\Users\Administrator> w32tm /resync 
Sending resync command to local computer
The command completed successfully.

PS C:\Users\Administrator> (Get-Item -Path "HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\w32time\Parameters").GetValue("Type") 

# on a Domain Controller of Forrest Root,
# if target is [Local CMOS Clock], change [Type] to [NTP]
# next, change to NTP server with the same way in [1] section
PS C:\Users\Administrator> Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\w32time\Parameters" -Name "Type" -Value "NTP"
