How to increase frequency of time server synchronization

When server time creep challenges VM’s from remaining compliant, fix the host OS.

If using an Windows Hyper-V Server try the following:

1) start registry editor (regedit will do fine)

2) go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesW32TimeTimeProvidersNtpClient

3) edit value SpecialPollInterval.

SpecialPollInterval is defined in seconds. If you wish e.g. 1 hour just write 3600. You can calculate rest from here.
