Installing NTP on server

Recommended Posts

Dear players,

due to Windows Server problems that incorrectly handles time sync, we need to install NTP service to resolve this problem. We could actually see the problem with time sync yesterday during manor (server time was few minutes off sync).

One of the main reasons for installing NTP is:

  • NTP contacts the servers only as frequently as needed, between once a minute and once every 17 minutes.  W32Time, by default, only contacts servers once a week, so your PC could be minutes out between corrections!

You can read more info here.

We apologize for any inconvenience during installation of the service (server crash, etc).

Done, fortunately it didn't crash anything.

Now the clock on the server is managed by NTPd which means it doesn't do any step changes and will always just slow down or speed up the clock to keep in sync with NTP servers on the Internet.

There were still some problems (drifting clock) and now it seems we've managed to fix it (unfortunately it required server restart).
