    What is PrvNtpServer

    Hi,
    i have and entry in the registry at
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters
    the name is PrvNtpServer (reg_sz) and it has valid data in it.
    i had no luck googling the entry. is it valid and does it work.
    server2003 r2 sp2 box.
    is this saying that my 'internal (private) ntp server' are those values?
    Thanks.

    I haven't seen that entry, yet. You can read the following articles for time
    service registry entries:

    Hi,

    thanks for the response, but those articles did not produce any info
    pertaining to PrvNtpServer.

    As mentioned and implied, I could not find anything on that in a search. Do
    you have more than one server? Do you see that value on other servers or
    machines? I looked at a few of my customer sites, including my own, and did
    not see that entry anywhere, even searching the reg. Do you think someone
    put that in there mistakenly?

    Hi,
    i only see the value on two servers. and the prvntpserver points to our ntp
    servers. we have more ntp servers (please don't ask why - i am sure it made
    sense to whomever set this up!)
    i think that someone put it there thinking it was a real value.

    Thanks.

    That may be possible. I would remove it or rename it to the correct value,
    and go through the steps mentioned in the article I provided to set your DCs
    up properly.
