I posted this in the networking forums, but it would seem that those are rarely looked at so I may get a quicker result in here, besides, it works in Linux and not in Windows 2003 so there is a direct relation to Windows 2003.

Hey guys, my sites recently had an upgrade and Positron suggested that I also update my NTP to the newer version they supplied (4.02?? i think, i could not find any documentation).

So here is my issue.

In the old NTP I was capable of manually synchronizing the time to my ntpserver incase it began to travel, to do this I CD'd to the ntp folder and ran the command "ntpdate -b ntpserver1" This caused it to force a synchronization with the ntpserver1.

Now in the new version of NTP, I am un able to perform this command, I receive a access denied error. I can NOT get around this error (it is windows system, in a linux I would just use root and be able to get around it probably, alas, this is windows :-/)

So my question is, do you know of a new way to synchronize time with the new NTP????

I tried using ntpdc once in ntpdc command line I would establish my host (ntpserver1) and than it confirmed it was a server requesting time from elsewhere (our net clock) so I than perform an ntpdc auth ntpserver1, it says it completes successfully, however, it did nothing.

Any suggestions?
