If the time synchronization method is set to Windows and the Device Time Server is the Metasys Server's IP/hostname, follow these steps to verify that the w32time service on the Metasys Server is functioning correctly:

  1. Turn on Set time automatically in Windows. On the server, go to Start > Settings > Time & language > Date & time. Set the Set time automatically switch to On.
  2. Check that the Windows Time service is valid. Open a Windows Command Prompt window and run w32tm /query /status. In the command output, if the stratum shows as Invalid, continue to the next step. If the stratum does not show as Invalid, time synchronization is operating correctly.
  3. Set the NTP Server enabled setting in Registry Editor to 1. Open Registry Editor and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\TimeProviders\NtpServer\Enabled. In the Value data text box, enter 1 and click OK.
  4. Restart the Windows Service. Right-click the Start button and select Run. Type services.msc in the Run window. Right-click on Windows Time and select Restart.
