At IU, how can I synchronize my Windows computer's time with the IU Active Directory domain controllers?

To synchronize the time on your Windows computer with the Indiana University Active Directory domain controllers, run the following command as an administrator at a command prompt:

 net time \\ads.iu.edu /set /y

To view the time on the domain controllers, use this command without the /set /y switches. If you enter the command without the /y switch, you will be prompted to indicate whether you wish to change the local time on your computer.
