Cannot sync with windows time server!

Q: Cannot sync with windows time server!

Hello! I am running Windows Vista Home Premium, and ever since I have owned this PC the time and date is ALWAYS incorrect. It will not synchronize, and says that there is an error.

I attempted to change the date/time using the command prompt. I am the administrator and only user of this computer, however this error came up:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6000]
Copyright (c) 2006 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
C:\Users\Owner>date
The current date is: 30/08/2009
Enter the new date: (dd-mm-yy) 23-09-09

C:\Users\Owner>time
The current time is: 19:17:33.20
Enter the new time: 00:46:00
A required privilege is not held by the client.
Can anyone help me to adjust the date/time? This is highly irritating! Thank you!

Preferred Solution: Cannot sync with windows time server!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

XP Pro SP2, all latest updates. When I reboot, I can correctly sync to a time server, but after an unknown amount of time it goes back to saying "The RPC server is unavailable" instantly after clicking Update Now, regardless of what server I tell it to sync to. I also noticed that if I view my nForce Networking Controller status, then click Properties and go to the Authentication tab, everything is greyed out. If I hit OK without changing anything (I can't change it even if I wanted to), a message pops up saying "An unexpected condition occured. Not all of your requested changes in settings could be made" and just goes back to that window. I have to hit cancel to close it. These two issues seem to be related since right after I reboot, the Authentication tab works normally (as well as the time sync like I mentioned above), and they both seem to stop working at the same time. I have no idea if it happens after something I run or if it's just after a certain amount of time or what. Any ideas?

Hi,

I work at a tiny school which has no IT support. After a power cut, students are unable to log in to their individual users due to time being out of sync with server. I don't have info on local login info for these computers. Running XP. I can log in to server computer. Please help!
 

A:Client cant log in due to server time sync error HELP!

So the server date and time are correct? Are all computers affected or only one? How do you have the server password but not the local admin account for the workstations? There must be an IT department or IT contractor/firm somewhere for the school that you can contact for the credentials or for assistance.

I've been having on-again, off-again problems with the clock randomly resetting to a day or two in the future. In the past, going into the internet time settings and telling it to update again fixed it. However the last time or two this has happened, I kept getting a message saying the connection to the server had timed out, and since I was in a hurry, I just reset the date manually and went on my way. The most recent occurrence, I had plenty of time on my hands and decided to see if I could figure out what was up with the internet time sync, and switched it to a different server to see if that would fix it. It didn't, and after a couple tries instead of saying the connection had timed out, it said that "the peer is unreachable". I went through all the default time servers and it did the same thing - it time out several times, and then it said the peer was unreachable. I then went and plugged in servers from this list- same thing. If anyone has any idea what's happening or how to fix it, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Hello,

I have had a problem with my Windows Time service for quite some months now, searched almost every possible solution I could find but I feel like I'm just going on a road that goes nowhere.

The problem:
My time seems to be perfectly okay and the date and time is all accurate, yet trying to sync to time.windows.com does not work. It either tells me the access is denied or I get a 1290 SID error.

I tried pretty much all the solutions in this post here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...c-397d417f5275

But no matter what I do, or in which order I do it. I either end up with "access denied'' or error 1290 whenever I try to sync to a windows time server. I've also done a sfc scannow command and it told me nothing was wrong. My BIOS was also updated today.

If anybody has any solutions I'd be happy to hear them, thanks in advance!

A:Windows time does not want to sync

Time.windows.com stopped working a long time ago I believe.

If your time and date are correct then there is no need to adjust the sync.

I have 6 computers in a workgroup that need to be synchronized to a workgroup server.  The server is a virtual Win 7 running on a Windows 10 host.  Neither the server or client computers have internet access.  I started the process by configuring
the host to use its CMOS clock as its time source, which seems to have worked. The client computers are not virtual and can communicate with the Win 10 host as I am able to RDP to the host from the clients.  I made the following registry key changes to
get that accomplished.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\Config]
"AnnounceFlags"=dword:00000005

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\Parameters]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\TimeProviders\NtpServer]

After applying these changes, I ran the following 'w32tm /config /update /syncfromflags: NO 

I get a message that the command is successful.

These changes are based on the following post:

Hello everyone,

For the last couple of weeks I have not been able to play GTA IV online as it will not connect to the server due to a Microsoft Games for Windows connection error. I contacted the Windows Live support people and they said (after we tried a bunch of things) that the problem was the Windows clock on my computer is unable to sync with the Windows Live one. They told me to contact Microsoft about the issue because it is a Vista problem, not a game problem. However, Microsoft wants to charge me $50 to troubleshoot the problem. Hopefully, someone can help me here for free.

If you need any more information, let me know.

Here is the info from the event viewer with the error code in bold (if this helps).

As the title suggests, my time is always out of sync, it makes it increasingly difficult to follow conversations on Skype, for instance. I try to manually update the time and it tells me fairly often that there's an error when trying to update. It doesn't matter if my PC is powered off or if I'm using it, the time is bound to get out of sync, so I doubt it has anything to do w/ the CMOS battery. Should I be using a different time server other than time.windows.com? I'm also using Webroot SecureAnywhere Anti-virus. Not sure if that's causing a conflict or not.

I'm on Windows 10 RTM
I'm not connected to a domain, just a regular Windows Home network.

I have an HP Pavilion laptop running Windows XP Pro SP3 that has a dead CMOS battery so every time I leave it unplugged for a bit (the battery is also dead) the time/date resets to factory defaults (Jan, 2006).

I didn't think this would be an issue as w32tm service should automatically should sync with either time.windows.com or time.nist.gov, right? Problem is, it doesn't, and won't even let me do it manually.
Things I have tried (through command prompt):

net stop w32time && net start w32time
w32tm /resync

when that didn't work:

w32tm /config /update /manualpeerlist:time.nist.gov /syncfromflags:manual
net stop w32time && net start w32time

That command will go through with no problems but then when I try and resync it says:

"The computer did not resync because no time data was available."

So I tried using a different time server that I found online and I got the same thing.

I really wanted to write a batch script to run on log in that would synch my time up but I can't get anything to work!!

Any help would be appreciated

At the elevated command prompt (with administrator privileges), type the following command

1. Type "w32tm /debug /disable" and press 'Enter' (net stop w32time gave an Error 5 Access denied response!)

2. Type "w32tm /unregister" and press 'Enter' (without using the first command the second did not work!)

Okay, this one is a doozy. We had our storage server OS drive crash on our domain which required a reinstall. Luckily the data stores were all there still on a separate RAID, so it was just a matter of redoing the shares after the reinstall. However
we ran into a problem with several laptop users.

As soon as they plugged into the network today, all the work they did during the outage appears to be gone. They appear only to have access to the files on the network (which of course isn't current). As a test, I've tried disconnecting them from
the local network to check their offline files (disabling wireless and unplugging the dock) and they appear to lose access to everything as a result now... both desktop and files.
I've attempted a sync in Sync Center but it simply says "Sync Pending" and hangs there.

When I try to navigate to view my offline files on the system through the Sync Center interface, it says "The system cannot find the file specified."


Out of curiosity, I tried manually navigating to Windows\CSC and access is denied. Even when attempting to take ownership as local admin, it still doesn't want to let me in.

Hi,

 

Did you set any group policy to prevent client from changing the services?


 

I suggest you take the ownership of %WINDIR%\System32\W32TM.EXE, disable the security software and firewall on both side to check the result. Also re-configure the
group policy related to Windows Time Service and re-apply them.

 

In addition, I suggest contacting Server Forum to confirm with the issue.

It's critical that my PC keeps the exact time as I record TV shows on it so just a few seconds off one way or the other will make me miss the start or end of my shows.

I found it was drifting off too much between syncs so I found a program that lets me set it to sync daily, however it seems like most of the time it gets the time completely wrong, often as much as 30-90 seconds off. I did notice that when syncing manually in the time settings it normally gets the right time each time, so I don't know why the scheduled syncs get the wrong time.

I did try several of the time servers with the same results.

Is there just no way to get the Windows time sync to work properly and if not are there free third party programs that can do it reliably?

Yes the OS can override the BIOS time. It uses UTC to update. Check your time zone in Date & Time tab, to see if that is why your time is off.

Hi,

I am having an issue with offline files created offline syncing back to the server. I have set up a network share to be available offline on a client computer. All files are available offline without issue. Here is the issue however. If I set the folder to work offline any file I create in the folder when it is offline just disappears when the folder comes back online, there are no conflicts or sync failures reported in sync center. If I create a new folder offline the folder does sync back to the server. Any changes made to an existing file are also replicated back to the server once the share is back online. So the issue is only with newly created files when the share is offline. I have not been able to replicate this error on any other file server in our environment, However I have recreated the issue with multiple shares with multiple Win 7 clients on this file server.

Steps taken so far.

Checked and reset permission levels on the share.
Recreated new shares from scratch for testing.
Disabled and enabled offline files on the client computer and cleared the offline cache.
Check various registry entry settings.
Disabled cashing on the File server.
Tested with XP the issue does not exist with XP.

I have spent hours researching this error online to no avail.

The clients are running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
The File server is Server 2003 Standard 32 bit with SP2

Any help or ideas would be most welcome.

Im in vista 64 bit. I was trying to install a licence for Cubase and was getting a time, calendar error. I look and everything is on time to the second hand on my wall.

But for the hell of it, I tryed syncing it to all the availible servers but got:

"An error occured while Windows was synchronizing with whatever.server"

However I can ping the servers in comand prompt. And also, like the topic says, It still keeps perfect time. It set it's own time. So Im clueless. A bios thing perhaps?

Any suggestions appreciated

Thanks

A:Wont time sync even tho keeps time

Hello Hogie,

You might see if these may help any. I would see if using a different time server may help first though.

Internet Time Synchronization

and

Internet Time Synchronization Update Interval

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Everytime I try to sync my computer with the time.gov server or the time.windows (the two defaults) I get an error. My time has been about four minutes off for quite some time, and it didn't bother me, but today I was denied access to the faculty (at my university) server because the time wasn't synced. I read somewhere that there might be different servers to try and connect to? I trust you guys at BP and so I wanted to see if there was any insight towards getting my computer clock back to synced! Thanks!

My computer is off most of the time, so the date & time are never right unless I remember to sync them with an outside source. Is there some way to re-sync at power on, or to prompt for re-sync at start up?

A:Time Sync @ Pwr On

According to my notes on the subject, run regedit and navigate to:

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\TimeProviders\NtpClient

and change the value of SpecialPollInterval to 15180 to change the frequency of updates to once each day.

That might help since the default frequency is once a week.

You might also look at a program called About Time from arachnoid dot com. Best I recall it not only updates at interval, which you set, but it will also update when you log in.

One or the other should help.

I recently installed a new battery on my motherboard so as to sync up with an internet or government time server. The way this is supposed to work is to have the server update your computer clock on a regular basis. So, I have chosen the server I wish my
computer to sync with in tclockex. But something is causing  the correct date and time to revert to default date and time which causes errors on the internet, rendering it useless and making me reset the clock manually every morning.
Once set, the clock remains correct throughout the day. But something is screwing with it during the night.
Could it be a virus? Could it be a setting? What can be causing this?

I don't know what is causing the clock problem but in the past some people have solved clock error problems this way:

Open a new User Account, see if the problem exists in the new account. If not, you can move to the new account and delete the old one.

Hi,

I have an issue that has been going on for months. I'm getting tired of it.

My PC time is always (about ~85% of the time) wrong by hours ( slower ).
The only way to get it back in-sync is when i click on 'Update Now' under Internet Time Settings. But that doesn't always help. Sometimes, i'll persistently get some sort of errors when trying to update the time.

Here's what i have done:
Checked BIOS time and made sure it's right
Changed from time.windows.com to something else but that doesn't fix
Format my PC ( clean format ) but it's still happening

Need some expert assistance in this. And oh, by the way, i have no firewall except for the default one that came with windows.
Thanks !

Hope every one is doing fine , just a small issue all our computers on the network have different time i want to sync the tiem on all the computers same as the domain controller time .HELP
 

A:Time Sync

Are the time services running on those machines? The workstations should automatically sync with the domain controller unless there is another time source specified.

Maybe this discussion will help:

Hi, I am hoping that someone can help me resolve a problem that i have been having since day 1 with windows 7.

The problem is that my PC will occasionally freeze requiring a hard reset.

The PC itself is solely used as a HTPC with Media Center running on it 24/7. Its running Win7 64 bit. There doesn't seem to be any common tasks that it will freeze up on, although a possible slight propensity for it to happen at 100% CPU use (encoding).

Its not heat on the CPU (it has also happened when at idle), all my drivers are up to date, I thought it might be Catalyst Control Center but it froze without this too, bios was updated the other week and yet i had three freezes in a day today.

The main clue (I think) is that there is always some problem with the time when it reboots after the freeze. A lot of the time it will wake up and think that its 2000, exactly 10 years to the second has been lost from the system clock. obviously this affects the scheduling of tasks, scheduled recordings and so on. Until recently there's been very little detail in the event log, often i have seen the last 1/2 hour to 5 hours missing completely and showing the wrong date when it resumes.

The last three freezes it has (seemingly) been able to retain all the even log and i have noticed that there is a event relating to synchronising the system time shortly before the freeze. When it has rebooted on each occasion, if i go through to changing the internet time settings, it tells me that the time server ha... Read more

A:Windows 7 Freeze and Possible Time Server Problems

Have exactly the same problem but at least I think I've found out why. The culprit appears to be searchindexer.exe.
My freeze is fairly random except that it will always occur when the tv listing update runs in the early am.
My setup:
- Windows 7 home premium
- Originally an ATI 4300 video card - now it's a Nvidia 430
- Hauppage PVR
- Asus N4L motherboard with 2M memory
- Home Server for pictures, music, etc.
I've gone thru a heck of lot of testing. Here's what I did:
1. Replaced the ATI with Nvidia. I too was seeing a bunch of errors and suspected the flood crippled the system. Didn't fix anything. Nothing in any of the system or media center logs; system just froze and required a reboot.
2. Replaced the hard drive and cable. Denada.
3. Replaced the memory. Denada,
4. Replaced the hard drive. Denada.
5. Double checked and reloaded all the latest drivers. Denada
6. Killed all the services that I could reasonably kill. Denada
7. Cleaned out all of the extraneous autoruns. Denada
8. Rebuilt the entire Windows 7 media center. Turned of aero and only loaded Total Media Player. Set up Home Server. Went thru the autorun and service cleanup. Downloaded all new drivers. Turned on monitors for temperature of CPUs and GPU - all remained fine. Ran memory test for two days with no errors. Denada and still not a single event log error posted - the system just stopped.
