I have an reporting tool that i need to syncronise between several

I want to make the central reporting tool the primary time server

then there will be several remote servers that i want to syncronise
the time with so they are all in sync

can this be acheived with w32time or is this purely for domain
situations as these servers will either be in different domains or
workgroups ?

so far i have followed windows technet and done the following on the
primary server

   1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
   2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
   3. In the right pane, right-click AnnounceFlags, and then click
   4. In Edit DWORD Value, type A in the Value data box, and then
click OK.
   5. Quit Registry Editor.
   6. At the command prompt, type the following command to restart the
Windows Time service, and then press ENTER:
      net stop w32time && net start w32time

but then when i run this command on the other server i get this ...

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>w32tm /stripchart /computer: /samples:5/dataonly

The current time is 31/03/2009 09:36:25 (local time).
