Determine NTP server on a Microsoft Windows system

If you wish to determine the Network Time Protocol (NTP) server that a Microsoft Windows system is using to synchronize its time, you can find that information in the Windows registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters\NtpServer.


You can query that value from a command-line interface (CLI) with the command reg query HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters. To see just the NTP server fully qualified domain name (FQDN), you can pipe the output of the reg query command to the find command and search for "NtpServer".

C:\>reg query HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters

    NtpServer    REG_SZ,0x9
    ServiceDll    REG_EXPAND_SZ    %systemroot%\system32\w32time.dll
    ServiceDllUnloadOnStop    REG_DWORD    0x1
    ServiceMain    REG_SZ    SvchostEntry_W32Time
    Type    REG_SZ    NTP

C:\Users\Administrator.LABYRINTH>reg query HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters | find "NtpServer"
    NtpServer    REG_SZ,0x9


In the above example, the time server is, an NTP server provided by Microsoft.
