How to set the time on a WinXP machine

Recommended Posts

Here is the question.

I need to be able to set the correct time on my Windows xp machine before it joins the domain as if the time is out think its 5 mins it will not join the domain.

Now I have some PC's that the BIOS clock is not correct. so I can not use the Hardware clock to set the time.

I can set the time with w32tm but to do this I have to be in the domain first. I could use Netdom (2000 version) to set the time but this needs creditials and does not allways work.

So I thought about NTP my routers run NTP (Cisco) and I do not need to provide creditals.

How do I do a query /cmd line /program to query the NTP on the cisco and then update the windows os clock (Which I belive will also set the hardware clock UTC) thus will ebable me to join all my happy PC's to the domain.

And no I can not do it manually as I have over 12,000 or so to do :-(
