[Samba] ntp wiki page




Hi,

Further to the time sync wiki page:
 https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Time_Synchronisation
i have some questions/remarks.

What I gather from the page above: without any configuration, the windows domain members will use the DC with the PDC Emulator fsmo role as a time source.

So, as a minimum, you *have* to configure the DC with the PDC Emulator role as a time source (config according to to wiki page) and your clients will sync with it.

Doing this is mandatory.

And your other two options are:

1) configure (and enable) the default settings with a GPO, in which case windows will sync with time.windows.com,0x9

or

2) use your own DCs as time source, in which case some DCs (or all of them) have to be configured according to the aforementioned page.

If you choose this option 2, it might be a good idea to include in the wiki page that it is possible to use MULTIPLE DCs as time source, and you need to space-seperate them.

Alternatively, perhaps it is clever to use the samba domain dns name, as that should also give you all DCs, and thus redundancy..?

(and these last details are not on the page, so if they are good ideas, perhaps they can be added?)
