Event ID 14: Attempt to set time which differs by more than

Postby chicagotech » Thu Nov 08, 2007 11:15 am

Q: Any suggestions?

Event Type: Warning
Event Source: w32time
Event Category: None
Event ID: 14
Attempt to set time which differs by more than 12 hours aborted
0000: 00 00 00 00 ....

A: I know the PDC is the Windows 2000 Server. I would like to say the w32time
event 14 is a expected behavior. It is decided by the
MaxAllowedClockErrInSecs registry entry in the following registry:


The default value is 43,200 (12hours). The recommended value is 900 (15
minutes) or even lower, depending on time source, network condition and
security requirement. This also depends on the poll interval. We recommend
the poll interval to be one hour (Period = 24). We highly recommend that
you configure the authoritative time server to gather the time from a
hardware source. When configure the authoritative time server syncing with
Internet time source, there is no authentication for manual mode. You must
reconfigure the MaxAllowedClockErrInSecs registry entry.
