Hyper-V based domain controllers and Time Synchronization

Hello !,
Synchronizing time between computers in a windows server 2008 domain environment is an easy task, but there are some cinsiderations if your domain controllers are virtual machines hosted on Hyper-V.

You have to remove the "Time Synchronizaiton" feature from the "Integration Services" from the Virtual Machine Settings , otherwise the Virtual machine will by synchronizing it's clock from ther Hyper-V host and this may lead to problems if the clock on ther Hyper-V changes to any reason.
