I have been running Microsoft Windows 2012 since Beta and it is very good. I have not had any issues that have lingered and apart from no ‘Start’ button everything is simple and easy to use.
I have had one issue with my Microsoft Exchange 2013 server losing time and then of course mail stops and no RDP. I have been checking and everything seems as it should and then I thought of running the following to check the time configuration:[sourcecode language="powershell" collapse="false"] w32tm /query /configuration
I noticed that when running this I had no ‘ntpserver’ set and so ran the following command:[sourcecode language="powershell" collapse="false"] net stop w32time
By doing the above to each server I can confirm that all my virtual servers are getting the time from my physical domain controller. I will update on this post if by doing this my time creep on the Microsoft Exchange 2013 server has been resolved.
The above can also be done on the domain time server to get its time from a known external source.
To check what server any member server is getting its time from then type the following:[sourcecode language="powershell" collapse="false"] net time
I know the above should not be required but it has helped me so I thought I would share.
