Having an issue with the time not syncing properly on some clients that point to our server. Here's the scenario:
- Manufacturing floor Server running WS 2008 R2 (2 NIC's, one to our corporate network and one to the production network) - Clients running Windows XP SP3 (using the manufacturing floor IP Addresses in the 172.x.x.x subnet)
The centralized time server is on our corporate network (10.x.x.x) and the manufacturing server pulls the time via the corporate centralized time server. Works fine on the server.
The clients sync their time from the manufacturing floor server by pointing it's IP Address. The clients don't seem to sync correctly as the time is usually off.
This is the same way we set up another manufacturing line, only with Windows Server 2003 on the server and Windows XP on the clients.
Port 123 doesn't seem to be blocked on the server firewall. And since the client PC's are on a different subnet, they don't communicate with the corporate network to use the centralized time server.
