    I have configured my PDC to receive it's time (through Windows Time Service)
    from an external time software. The PDC finds the time and syncs via port
    123, (reports in the event log that it sync'd from IP of external time
    source)but then in the event log reports that "Windows Time Service sent a
    stop control" and then logs "Windows Time Service has Stopped" and then the
    Windows Time Service on the PDC switches from Automatic to disabled....HELP--
    I have read almost every single tech net article and am confident that
    W32tm is configured properly, b/c the event log shows the process syncing....
    Any ideas??

    When you view the logged events in Event Viewer in the upper right corner,
    third button down is a copy to clipboard, then you can paste in the body of
    a reply message.

    Please do so for each of these different system events so we can see all of
    the event detail.

    Exactly, how do I figure out what is going on when that is all I am getting?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks so much for responding.

    Check to see if any dependencies exist for the Windows Time service. Also
    look for other events that happen at around the same time. When you set it
    back to automatic can you verify that the Reg_DWord 'Start' is set to 2
    found at;

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time

    No dependencies for time service, no similarities in other events occuring at
    the same time, also reg_dword 'start' is set to 2-
    I really appreciate your input- let me know if you think of anything else

    You never did say.... if you leave it the way it is, does the time sync only
    happen the one time?

    yes, the time sync happens once and then stops/crashes and disables Time
    Service within about 5 minutes.

    What did you mean by "crashes"?

    I tried the top set of NET TIME Commands, but the W32TM -ONCE -V set came
    back invalid commands, am I missing something?
    Thanks so much

    The service stops and in the control panel/admin tools/services panel is
    disabled. It has to be manually restarted again from that screen (or dos NET
    START) to begin over, but to no avail, it stops again after syncing once.
    The Server does not crash per se, just using that as a general term for the
    service.

    I'm out of ideas here. It may be that the policy for system services
    security is somehow corrupt.

    After running the W32TM /monitor command set, I got a curious error within
    those results that basically said that the FQDN was the IP address and name
    of the other DC- Checked FSMO roles and the other machine is set a the PDC
    for the Infastructure master, was not sure if that impacts Services at all....
