adjust.offset

This configuration parameter specifies the time difference between the local host and the domain that should trigger an adjustment to the local computer’s time-of-day setting.

The default parameter value is 5 minutes. With this setting, if the time difference between the local host and the domain controller is less than 5 minutes, the adclient process calls the adjtime function to update the local host time to match the Active Directory domain. If the offset between the local computer and the domain controller is more than 5 minutes, adclient process calls the settimeofday function to update local computer’s time.

The parameter value can be any positive integer. For example:

adjust.offset.time: 5
