  • Hi Soad2007,

    May i know which OS you are using???? if you are using Windows Server 2008 than this is the correct forum to report the issue and that will help me in providing you better solution. However, as per your Thread it seems that your parent Domain controller is not functioning correctly and hence you are facing time synchronization issue. If that is the case please visit:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/837513

    however, if may the issue of active Directory also.

    If you have a Windows 2000 Active Directory forest with a parent domain and a child domain, the default time-synchronization mechanism may not work if a domain controller in the child domain is used for synchronization because it is closest, even though the parent domain controller is available for synchronization
