Premium players, especially those in an on-prem installation without internet access, may need to be setup with time synchronization, in which case Windows connects to a time server (NTP).
See this page for information on setting up the local time server.


Add the custom setting ClockSyncServer, as string, with the address to the NTP server to use.

Via Windows

  • Open a command window and type the following to change the standard Windows time servers to local, changing server-ip-or-fqdn to your local server address.
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:server-ip-or-fqdn /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update
  • Download the attached exported xml file: "Force Time Sync.xml".
  • Open Task scheduler. 
  • Go to Task scheduler library > Microsoft > Windows > Time Synchronization.
  • Right click and select Import task ... 

  • Browse to the xml file.
  • Click Ok 
  • Right click the newly created task and select Run.
  • Hit F5 to verify it has been successfully run and scheduled to run the next time.
