Hi Windows 7 Experts,

We are setting up 20 new windows 7 systems and i get this error in the event log.

NtpClient was unable to set a domain peer to use as a time source because of discovery error. NtpClient will try again in 3473457 minutes and double the reattempt interval thereafter. The error was: The entry is not found. (0x800706E1)

I just want to make sure that we set up all machines with 0 issues

All systems will be in a Domain

thank you

You don't need to worry if you're seeing this on the event log since this is just a minor problem when setting up network. To fix this, all you have to do is check the date and time of all your computers and make sure they are synched. If you're still seeing this message, disable the internet adapter and rollback the network drivers, that should fix the problem.

The possible solution to the problem you are encountering is given below.

Open command prompt with administrator privileges and type ‘W32TM /resync’ and then press Enter.

Then type ‘W32TM /query /status’ and press Enter.

To confirm that the Windows time service has synchronized successfully with the time source, observe the Event ID’s 35 and 37 do appear on the Event viewer.

If you see Event ID 138, this indicates that recovery has been made from previous failure. This will justify that the Windows Time service has synchronized successfully.

I’m just wondering how come many users keep on checking on the Windows event log. You really don’t need to check on it because it is the operating system’s own log book of all the processes and events happening in the system. All the errors met and recorded in the event log can be ignored. Here’s a little background on the Windows event log.

The Windows event log is the record or documentation of a computer’s notifications and alerts. An event is “any significant occurrence in the system or in a program that requires users to be notified or an entry added to a log”, according to Microsoft. Windows classifies events according to types. For example, an “information event” indicates the successful completion of a task like installing an application.

A “warning event” alerts or informs the administrator of a possible problem like for example low disk space. An “error message” indicates a major problem that can result in a loss of functionality. A “success audit” event signifies a completion of a reviewed security event like when a user has successfully logged on.

A “failure audit” event indicates a reviewed security event that didn’t complete successfully like for example when a user locked himself out by entering incorrect passwords.
