Set the SNTP time server on Windows 2003

Set the SNTP time server on Windows 2003

For the Australian time servers on the Telstra network I use:

tic.ntp.telstra.net or toc.ntp.telstra.net. To save part of a second on DNS resolution time, or if the DNS server has not started I use the direct IPs in the setsntp command ie.

net time /setsntp:203.14.0.250

You can also use some other local servers like

ntp.cs.mu.OZ.AU. For other servers see here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/262680

This helps cure event log messages like
