    I’m a linux newbie, so my apologies for what may be a simple/stupid question: Can I use my Windows 2003 domain controller as the NTP time source for S50 thin clients?

    I’ve got the DHCP scope option figured out, but I suppose there’s some config required on the DC (?). Does anyone know what that might be?

    Take a look at the downloads section when you get a chance.
    The Wyse Linux admin guide for .ini parameters can be found here:

    Short answer is yes, you can configure the NTP server to sync with either via DHCP option tags or adding the TimeServer=SERVERNAME or SERVERIP to the WLX.ini.

    If you’ve worked out the DHCP Option tag then you sound like your good to go. Windows Server OS’ have the Windows Time Service enabled by default, so I don’t believe there are addition configurations needed to the server.

    Are you having problems getting them to sync?
