ADP, Payroll and Windows Server Time fix

September 1, 2018

In the past week, a few servers that are running applications that connect and interface with ADP Payroll are seeing time differences, approximately 4 minutes.

 

Microsoft and Windows Time servers were good, and some other servers were good, but a few got lost.

 

so we can to make some changes and update the problems rather quickly.

 

This is a global domain issue as well and noted on client systems and can only be resolved by finding the time server, usually on the primary domain controller (PDC), and then fixed..

 

Fix time on server c/o NTP.org
 

you can look at what is going on

get to a cmd prompt in administrative mode

type some of the following:

w32tm /query /configuration

w32tm /query /status

Time /T

 

to fix the time server:

net stop w32time
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:"0.it.pool.ntp.org 1.it.pool.ntp.org 2.it.pool.ntp.org 3.it.pool.ntp.org"
net start w32time
w32tm /config /update
* next client only
w32tm /resync /rediscover

Oh, with the time change. there is a good line on Daylight Saving(s) Time on Slashdot.org -  I say get rid of DST and just have it either UTC or some Star Date like in Star Trek.
