It’s a known fact computers like to interact with other machines only when they can at least agree they exist in the same time. Once we learn more about time travel and parallel universes maybe this will change, but for now let’s keep all our clocks in sync!
Verify current status
Note the “Source” field. In the example below this indicates that the server is using the local system clock and not an NTP server.
PS C:\Users\Administrator> w32tm /query /status

Configure the NTP server to use
PS C:\Users\Administrator> net time \\time.windows.com /set /yes
