W32time not updating

The few details that I try and take away from the output of these commands are: W32tm /query /configuration [/verbose] W32tm /dumpreg /subkey:parameters W32/config /syncfromflags: MANUAL /manualpeerlist:“0ntp.org,0x9 1ntp.org,0x9” W32/config /syncfromflags: DOMHIER As mentioned above, regardless of workgroup or domain joined, both use the Windows Time Service.

But sometimes it’s possible that this Windows time service doesn’t start automatically and you might get the error “The Windows Time Service is not started.” This means the Windows Time service failed to start and your Date & Time will not be synchronized. Now Time Synchronization in Task Scheduler may start Windows Time service before the Service Control Manager and in order to avoid this situation, we need to disable Time Synchronization in Task Scheduler.

So without wasting any time let’s see how to actually Fix Windows Time service doesn’t start automatically issue with the below-listed troubleshooting steps. Press Windows Keys X then select Command Prompt (Admin). Type the following command one by one and hit Enter: pushd %System Root%\system32 .\net stop w32time .\w32tm /unregister .\w32tm /register .\sc config w32time type= own .\net start w32time .\w32tm /config /update /manualpeerlist:”0ntp.org,1ntp.org,2ntp.org,3ntp.org”,0x8 /syncfromflags: MANUAL /reliable:yes .\w32tm /resync popd 3.

If the above commands don’t work then try these: w32tm /debug /disable w32tm /unregister w32tm /register net start w32time 4. Find Windows Time Service in the list then right-click and select Properties. Make sure the Startup type is set to Automatic (Delayed Start) and the service is running, if not then click on start.

I’ve been lucky enough to only have to require this a handful of times. DO NOT USE THE NET TIME command anymore, it’s deprecated, old and does not give you all the information required to fix modern day time issues!

Most of the issues I run across I’ve been able to fix with the above troubleshooting and commands. file: – contains a list of flags, specified by number and separated by commas, that specify the types of information that should be logged.
