time clock issue with Agent for VMware (virtual appliance)
hi to all,
on all the Agents for vmware (virtual appliances) that we have deployed we have problems with time sync, after few days all the appliances clock is set some minutes forward. Is there a way to sync the appliances with an ntp server? With the Windows machines (console manager and Windows appliance) we havn't the problem because of course Windows can sync time with an ntp server. thank you in advice
The time on appliances is synced with the time on the ESXi host they are deployed on. This is done via embedded VMware Tools which are running inside the appliances. First of all you should make sure that the NTP server is set up properly on the ESXi host side and this time should be properly synced with the appliance automatically.
