Enough to forget about :( Distributed datacenters and site powerdowns means the 
FSMO roles are often moved around. Moving the FSMO role does not unfortunately 
clean up the NTP registry settings appropriately especially if manual peerlists 
are configured using ADM extensions.

Thanks.

I would usually just set that in the local GPO on the PDCE so you don't have to 
mess with a WMI filter. You only need to do it on one box basically, so there 
is really no need to create a domain GPO.

Although I understand your point about the PDCE role moving, how often does 
that really happen?

Does anyone use a GPO to control time settings (source NTP servers amongst 
others)? Further to ensure that settings are applied in the event of the FSMO 
PDCE role being moved does anyone filter using WMI to ensure its applied to 
only the PDCE? eg: select * from Win32_ComputerSystem where DomainRole = 5

Thanks!
