hi ntp-questions,

I am quite new to testing and I am asked to tests time with two different NTP servers
I would need you help and advice

If there is already someone who has tested it please do let me know

Here is what I have thought of.

1. Check time with first timeserver

steps:
1.Install Operating system (say windows)
2.Set incorrect date
3.set ntp server
4.Check date is proper now (verify it with google)

check time sync

2.Check time with 2 NTP servers

steps:
1.Set incorrect date
2.Set NTP server1
3.Change timezone and change date again
4.Set NTP server 2
5.Check time is synced back to normal

any other suggestion / advice / points which I need to consider while I test NTP? 

thanks
srinivas
