|Domain Time Client|
Please read the Installation Topics pages before installing.
In most cases, you'll want to use Domain Time Manager to install and configure Domain Time Servers and Clients remotely
across your network from your management workstation. If that's what you'd like to do, you can skip these installation instructions and read the
Network Rollout 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 properly on your clone image.
If you will be installing Domain Time 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.
