I've tried the following code
import os os.system('w32tm /resync')
But the result was
The following error occurred: The service has not been started. (0x80070426)
I'm pretty sure the time service was started on a prior run by itself so this was odd - maybe it doesn't automatically run in-between restarts but then I'm not sure how it started before. In any case, running
Net start w32time solved the not running issue. But then from the python script I get:
Sending resync command to local computer The following error occurred: Access is denied. (0x80070005)
I'd like for my script to be able to run ntp sync whenever I detect time issue from my application so that the application can control its destiny but I also would like to keep privileges where they are without having to elevate privileges to get the command to work. I looked into
ntplib and I don't think it offers resyncing functions but ability to query time from time servers. A workaround is to run an external task that continues to resync a defined period.
Is there a way to run a NTP sync command from my script instead? Machine is windows 10.
