When you access and server in the network like DFS for file access then show a error "This server's clock is not synchronized with the primary domain controller",

This problem is time Synchronization from server to client or server from NTP server or other,

In that case you have to to troubleshooting for time Synchronizing.



Domain authentication depends on the server time, If any problem with the server time then Client can not  be access server or login in to the server, Now we are correcting the time on server and server to all client from command mode

Correct the system time according to domain controller
This command will check the local system time with corresponding domain controller.
Run | cmd | and type "NET TIME /domain:mydomainname /SET /Y"
This command run on client machine

This will synchronize the machine time to that of the domain controller. After doing this, you can simply log off and log on again with the domain user.

Use the below command to synchronise time on Domain Controller
Run | cmd | and type w32tm /resync

To check the current time source
Windows XP - Net time /QUERYSNTP
Windows 7 or later - w32tm /query /source

To view The complete Configuration Of windows Time service on any computer run the below command
w32tm /query /configuration

Type the following command to configure the PDC emulator and then press ENTER:
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:Servername /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update

To configure a client computer for automatic domain time synchronization
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update

How to synchronize an internal time server with an external source
Run | Cmd | and type w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:peerlist
Type w32tm /config /update, and then press ENTER

[NOTE: - This troubleshooting also work Sometimes when joining a machine to a new domain, you might get an error saying "The time on your machine does not match with the network time" ]

[NOTE: - If get error The following error occurred: Access is denied. (0x80070005) during run the command, Then you have to Run the command as Administrator then try again.
