TimeSync: XNTP vs. Windows Time?

It seems CM 3.x uses a utility cisco calls XNTP to sync time between call managers - but is there a way to get the published call manager to synch with an external time source - I notice the MCS install does not activate Windows TIme so I'm not inclined to activate it thinkning it could interfere with the XNTP time - but it would be nice to know how to get the source XNTP server synched without manually changing the time every week when it drifts...

Thanks!

I could be wrong but I thought that windows time service only worked when the w2k server was in a domain. I think you can point xntp to anytime server. You can find doc on the web about and see what you find.

Thank you,

Yeah - it does unless you modify the sntp variable with the "net time /setsntp: " command - but at any rate since cisco included the xntp util i figured that'd be the most supported way to go - I just didn't know how to get them ti sync to an external time source - is the xntp doc on cisco's site - or is that a 3rd party app?

Thanks!
