Assuming that the XP and 2K machines are domain members, and that the
"Windows Time" service is running on them, they don't need the "Net
Time" command.
And the Win9x machines only need it for aesthetic purposes... Win2K and
XP won't authenticate if their time is too far off, but 9X machines
don't care.
But, for sanity's sake, I would change the command to:
IF NOT "%OS%"=="Windows_NT" NET TIME /DOMAIN:domainname /SET
And it will do it only on 9X machines...

Conversation: net time and logon script
Subject: [windows2000] net time and logon script


We have a line in our logon script to sync the time with DC using "net

It's causing a couple of PCs the hang at logon. 


Our DCs sync their time at root level. Can I get rid of the net time

Windows 2003 domain. Mostly XP, few 2000 one 98 but no 95 . 

Thanks Joanne
