WATS Clients should have a valid date/time and time zone setting for proper reporting.
How to synchronize time
- VMWare Virtualization
(See: VMware Tools Time Synchronization and Configuration)
- How to configure an authoritative time server in Windows Server
(See: Configuring the Windows Time service to use an external time source)
- Configure a time source for the forest https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/it-pro/windows-server-2008-r2-and-2008/cc794823(v=ws.10)
For hosts that are not member of a domain:
- How to synchronize the time with the Windows Time Service in Windows 10 https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/it-pro/windows-server-2008-r2-and-2008/cc816656(v=ws.10)
- Set the clock https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4026213/windows-how-to-set-your-time-and-time-zone
We recommend having a domain environment, where the PDC emulator in the forest root domain retrieves the time from an internet time server. In cases where there are more than one forest, each forest should retrieve the time from the same internet time server.
