I would like to keep my time up to date using an online NTP server.
pool.ntp.org seems to work for other devices on the network, so that's the NTP server I want to use.
When I update the NTP server and click
Update now, I always get the following error
An error occurred while windows was synchronizing with pool.ntp.org. When I close the screens and re-open it, it says
Windows successfully synchronized to time.windows.com on ..., even though it didn't..
In the Event logs I can find the following message:
The time provider 'VMICTimeProvider' has indicated that the current hardware and operating environment is not supported and has stopped. This behavior is expected for VMICTimeProvider on non-HyperV-guest environments. This may be the expected behavior for the current provider in the current operating environment as well.. Just to make things clear, I am NOT using a VM.
Not sure if it's got something to do with it, but I am unable to install the KB3124263 update.
What have I tried/checked?
- w32tm /resync
- w32tm /unregister-register
- net stop-start w32time
- Windows Time service is set to Automatic and is running
- added FW rules for ports 123 UDP (incoming and outgoing)
- I can ping pool.ntp.org and tried other ntp servers too (same error)
Citrix XenDesktopinstalled that might be the reason it is failing.
