Variance Reports from Domain Time II Manager or Monitor Service do not include all machines running Domain Time II
Information for version 4.1 and earlier
The Manager and Monitor Service Variance Reports only include machines running Domain Time II that have the Respond to DTCheck option set.

only includes Servers. Clients can be added to the variance reports as desired using the methods detailed below.
