Resetting the time configuration

I was wondering why one of my domain controllers was displaying the wrong time. I had previouly configured that just the PDC should go outside the domain. So I ran w32tm /monitor, the response was not really what I hoped

For the domain controller in question I got the following line RefID: (unspecified / unsynchronized) [0x00000000]. RefID should tell where the computer got it’s time from. In this case something was wrong, so I needed to reset the configuration. This resets the configuration of the domain controller to take the time from the PDC of the forest root domain.

Unless you have a to big time difference this command will update the configuration and trigger an automatic update. In my case the time was corrected directly.
