Syncing Domain Controller with PresenTense, Clients with Windows Time

When using PresenTense software to sync a Windows network, typically all nodes are synced with PresenTense. However, it may be desired to sync just the Domain Controller (DC) to the NTP server using PresenTense software and to sync the Windows clients to the DC using the Windows Time Service. This can be done by installing PresenTense Client software on the Domain Controller and then modifying the Advanced Settings of the PresenTense Client software to allow PresenTense and Windows Time to work in conjunction with each other.
