Server 2016 ntp not updating
If no one objects, this question will be closed automatically the way described above.We use the NTP protocol to sync the time of servers,network devices, client PC’s with our local time zone to keep the correct time over the network.An NTP server is a server that uses the Network Time Protocol.The main task of an NTP server is to send the time signal to any server that requests it. a server that utilizes the NTP is sometimes referred to as just the NTP. NTP servers are queried by servers from all around the world.
This mainly helps in global transactions and communications. Note: UDP port 123 should be open in order for the NTP traffic to reach you.
So, it is pretty common for servers to query the NTP server to ensure that all their devices are synchronized and using the same time. You can configure your Windows server to query the NTP server in just a few lines. If, for some reason, the time isn’t synchronizing with the NTP servers then check the Event logs via the Event Viewer.
