I noticed the time on a Microsoft Windows 7 Professional system was ahead of the actual time by 22 minutes. The system was part of a Windows domain, but the domain controller (DC) was decommissioned. I checked the Network Time Protocol (NTP) settings from a command-line interface (CLI) by opening a command prompt window with administrator level access and using the Microsoft Windows w32tm command. to check the current configuration for querying time servers.
