Hi All, I have a domain controller *seemingly* receiving bad time info
today from 0.au.pool.ntp.org
Issuing this confirmed the time was flapping forward 30 mins, then 30 mins
later back to normal:
w32tm /query /status
It confirmed the above ntp server as the server that supplied the bad (then
good, then bad, then good etc) time
I have now changed the DC to pull instead from 3.au.pool.ntp.org.
1 hour has passed and so far so good.

Cannot say I have ever seen anything like this...
It's only occurring on one site on a windows2008r2sp1 domain controller.
The DC in turn relays this updated time to all domain members of course.
Anyone else had time issues on any sites today in Aus?
