Get-Time Cmdlet

Parameters   Output Objects   Configuration Settings  

The Get-Time cmdlet provides the current (GMT) time from an Internet Time Server.

Syntax

Get-Time [parameters]

Remarks

This cmdlet implements a standard Time Protocol client as specified in RFC 868.

The cmdlet obtains the system time of the Time Server provided in the Server parameter. If the Set switch is set, the cmdlet synchronizes your system time with that of the Time Server.

The cmdlets support pipeline input for some of their parameters. Prebuilding an object and piping it to the cmdlet is very useful, but should be used with caution to prevent security conflicts. Steps have been taken to decrease the risk of a possibly accidental pipe to the cmdlet, for instance, the Credential parameter cannot be piped to the cmdlet and must be specified manually.


# Find the time
get-time -server timeserver 
# Synchronize
get-time -server timeserver -set
