|Domain Time II Audit Server
Domain Time II Audit Server is a robust central data-collection and monitoring service.
You can monitor time synchronization, collect historical data, raise alerts, and generate summary reports for your entire network from your Management Workstation.
Audit Server is tightly integrated with Manager and Server
and must be set up on a machine where they both are already installed.
Note: Since many functions of Domain Time II Audit Server depend on accurate time calculations, it should always be run on a physical (not virtual) machine.
- If you have obtained Audit Server in a separate distribution package, use its Setup program to install Audit Server.
- If the Audit Server files are already present on Domain Time II Manager, you will have the option to install the Audit Server service from the Audit Server item on Manager's menu.
Audit Server runs as a background service, so it should already be running after installation. To configure Audit Server, you will need to use Domain Time Manager.
Click the Domain Time Manager icon in the Start -> All Programs -> Domain Time II program folder.
You may also launch the Domain Time II Manager program (and many other installed Domain Time II components) by right-clicking
on the Domain Time icon in the System Tray to bring up the context menu.
Verify that your environment meets the minimum requirements for performing remote operations using Domain Time components. In order to be
able to install, upgrade, or configure remote machines:
- Your network must be a correctly-configured Windows network, i.e. configured with working name resolution
(DNS, WINS, NetBIOS, etc.), correct and functioning Active Directory (if used), working inter-domain trusts, etc.
- Your network must pass both UDP and TCP network traffic sent to destination port 9909. Switches and firewalls
must pass this traffic bi-directionally, since traffic will originate either from Manager or the remote machines.
Your network must pass this traffic, regardless of what time protocols are used to actually synchronize the time.
Note: As of Version 5.2.b.20150821, Domain Time supports automatic management of the Windows Firewall to allow access to the required time protocol and control ports.
See Auto-Manage Windows Firewall Settings for detailed information.
- The remote machine must respond to PING requests from the connecting machine.
- The connecting Domain Time program, utility, or service must be run using credentials with sufficient privileges
to connect to and write files to the administrative shares on the remote machine using Microsoft Networking (Domain
Admin if the target is a domain member, Local Machine Administrator if the target is in a workgroup).
- The Remote Registry Service must be running on the remote systems and its registry keys must be accessible to the
- All files from the original distribution for each type of product you want to install (Server, Client, etc.) must be extracted
and present on your connecting machine. Setup copies these to the proper locations in the \Program Files\Domain Time II
folder for you automatically when you install the Management Tools.
