Install Domain Time II

    If you'll be using Domain Time II Server to distribute time to Domain Time II Clients, please read the Installing Domain Time II pages before installing.

    In most cases, you'll want to use Domain Time II Manager to install and configure Domain Time Servers and Clients remotely from your management workstation. If that's what you'd like to do, you can skip these installation instructions and read the Manager documentation instead.

    It's also possible to use an existing installation of Server install to another machine remotely using the command-line. This option is for advanced users. See the Command-line Options page for details.

    If you use cloned OS images to install machines, please read this article from our knowledgebase about configuring Domain Time II properly on your clone image.

    IMPORTANT NOTES:

    • If you will be installing Domain Time II onto machines with AMD processors, we highly recommend you update your processor drivers (a.k.a. PowerNow!) to the current version for your operating system available from AMD's website to avoid known hardware timing issues. Please see this article from our knowledgebase for more info: KB2007.817.
    • Domain Time II Server is not supported on virtual machines.

    Installation/Upgrade

    • To install or upgrade Domain Time II Server directly to a single machine from the distribution setup files:

      1. Run the Setup program from the CD to install the program. (If you have an older version of Server installed, Setup will give you an upgrade option. Your original configuration settings will be preserved during the upgrade). See this page for details on using the Setup utlity.

      2. Start the Domain Time II Server applet from the icon in the Windows Control Panel to configure it. (On Vista with UAC enabled, you must Shift+Right Click and choose Run As... from the context menu to launch the Control Panel applet. On Windows Server Core, type in domtimes.cpl on the command line)

        1. Use the Server tab page to choose which protocols Server should provide to clients. If you'll be using Domain Time II TCP protocol, allocate at least one thread to it.

        2. Use the Time Sources tab page to set Server to get the time from a local GPS clock, or from other reliable time sources. (Hint: Check your routers and firewalls to be sure the ports for the time protocols you'll be using are open. Port 9909 UDP should always be open between your Domain Time II Server and any Domain Time Clients, Port 123 UDP should be allowed between your Server and any NTP time source or client, etc. See this page for more details on available time protocols and the ports they use.)

        3. If you don't have an external time source (or are using an internal clock card to set the time), uncheck the Set this machine's time from an external time source checkbox on the Time Sources tab page AND uncheck the Refuse to serve time until this machine's time has been set checkbox on the Advanced Settings tab page.

        4. If you'll be serving time to Domain Time II Ultra Thin or other broadcast clients, enable broadcasts using the Broadcasts tab page. You must NOT have more than one broadcast server on your network!

        5. Test your installation
          • Click the Sync This Machine Now button on the Server tab page.

          • Click View Log button to see the server activity log. You should see confirmation that the server set its time correctly from the time source you selected and is now serving time to clients.

    Removal

    • Use Domain Time II Manager to remove the program remotely.

    • Or use Add/Remove Programs utility from the Control Panel to remove the program.

    • You may also use the original Setup program to remove the program. Run Setup as described above and choose the Remove option.

    • The program can also be uninstalled from the command-line. See the Command-line Options page for details.
