Syncing time with Windows Server Dual Booting systems


I am about to work on getting the workstations on my network here to be connected to the Active Directory on my Windows 2003 server using Likewise Identity Service. One of the security requirements is a good time sync, so I am trying to setup my Windows server time server on my CentOS machines. These machines dual boot Windows 7 and CentOS 5.5. I am using the Windows server as a time server and it's getting its time from its CMOS. Following a microsoft kb article. I removed all the time servers from the CentOS box I am experimenting with and added the IP of my Windows server, it seems to connect ok but the time never gets updated.

Oh, and this network has no connection to the internet, it's cut off from the world, so sad and lonely and cannot get internet time!

Any ideas?

Thanks,
DemiSheep

Nothing directly to do with networking. Moved to Linux - Newbie.

What does "ntpq -pn" say on the client host?

Solved, I just had to check the box that says Syncronize before service is started inside the time settings and then unchecking the use local time source box.
