Hi

We are running a windows server 2012 R2 as domain controller and all client pc's by default synchronize with the domain time, but for some reason the domain time keeps changing on the server. We do not know the cause of it. The domain time just keep changing to the wrong time 3 hours behind the regular clock.
Any ideas please?

If virtual, then disable time keeping from the host.


Set the Time source On the PDCe

Setting the time service on the PDCe and the time source as 1.ie.pool.ntp.org (Irish NTP Server, closest to me...)

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:1.ie.pool.ntp.org /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update

net stop w32time

net start w32time

 

Time sync on other DC's

Check source

w32tm /query /source

 

Force change to the PDCe

w32tm /config /syncfromflags[biggrin]omhier /update

 

Check source

w32tm /query /source

 

Restart w32Time Service

net stop w32time

net start w32time

All of the rest that he posted still applies.  Find the appropriate time source for your area.

What are the results?

Is the time reporting as you would expect on the DCs?

As Tim mentioned, the rest is valid for physical or virtual.
What is the output from
w32tm /query /source

there is probably some other software in there that sets the time.

For more troubleshooting, enable w32time logging: https://support.microsoft.com/nl-nl/kb/816043

Maybe too obvious, but the DC is in the correct time zone ?

I had a similar problem last year, and my only solution was to reset the time service to defaults, see this article (I then reset similar to above and all ok now):-
