How to sync time in Windows PE

You have Windows PE 3.x running and you want to sync the time with your deployment server so there won’t be any time zone differences for the WinPE phase in your MDT logs.  How can you do this?

Try running these two commands from your WinPE command prompt:

Net use \\server_name\ipc$ /user:domain_name\user_name *

Net time \\server_name /set /y

Substitute appropriately for server_name, domain_name and user_name.
