    How do you show the Internet Time tab on a 2000 server? I enabled NTP in the registry on both 2000 and 2003 servers, but the Internet Time tab only shows on the 2003 servers. I made these reg changes:

    Thanks,

    Jason

    1. Change the server type to NTP. To do this, follow these steps:
    a. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
    b. Locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters\
    c. In the right pane, right-click Type, and then click Modify.
    d. In the Edit Value dialog box, under Value data, type NTP, and then click OK.

    2. Set AnnounceFlags to 5. To do this, follow these steps
    a.. Locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Config\
    a. In the right pane, right-click AnnounceFlags, and then click Modify.
    b. In the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, under Value data, type 5, and then click OK.

    3. Select the poll interval. To do this, follow these steps:
    a. Locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\TimeProviders\NtpClient\
    b. In the right pane, right-click SpecialPollInterval, and then click Modify.
    c. In the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, under Value data, type TimeInSeconds, and then click OK. Note TimeInSeconds is a placeholder for the number of seconds that you want between each poll. A recommended value is 900 Decimal. This value configures the time server to poll every 15 minutes.

    4. Enable NTPServer. To do this, follow these steps:
    a. Locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\TimeProviders\NtpServer\
    b. In the right pane, right-click Enabled, and then click Modify.
    c. In the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, under Value data, type 1, and then click OK.

    I've been looking on the Knowledge Base this morning and have not found the info I was looking for. I was hoping someone in this forum would have some experience with this issue.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    You won't get the tab in 2K. You have to manually define the time server to use using the command line.
