The following command will tell us what the time service is up to as far as where the machine is getting its time from: w32tm /query /source On any other DCs the following needs to be run: w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /reliable:no; w32tm /config /update; net stop w32time; net start w32time; w32tm /resync /rediscover On any member servers: w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier; w32tm /config /update; net stop w32time; net start w32time; w32tm /resync /rediscover Pasted from Tech Amature, I have same windows platform with you. during the 1 month, daylight savings time forwarded the clock an hour ahead.

Fire up a cmd prompt (or if you're lazy and used to running Powershell, you can run cmd from within your powershell (!!)) and run the following: C:\net stop w32time C:\That prompts the local computer to sync to it's configured time source."STARTUP TYPE" Option is there...can change "AUTOMATICALLY" clock OK.... Really desperate to find a workable solution as it is causing severe inconvenience on my network. But what if you want to sync your time automatically, with the servers more frequently – like say daily?
We I ran this command I received the following error: The service has not been started. This post will tell you in detail how to schedule a task using Task Scheduler in Windows 10/8/7.
