Vmware ntp not updating

If you don’t have access to v Center, you can also look on the guest OS by running the VMware Toolbox timesync status command on a Windows guest.For a linux guest try running vmware-toolbox-cmd timesync status command.I have tried to restart the NTP Service and synced the system clock to HWclock also. Please suggest the solution and steps to resolve the issue.. I see another server in the same network is working fine .

For a more detailed explanation look at tick counting in the Timekeeping Guide.

In some circumstances NTP or domain timekeeping isn’t possible and you need a way to make sure the time on the guest OS is set and the guest keeps time correctly.

For instance, if the ESXi host time is pm Central Time, but the guest virtual machine is set to Pacific Time, the guest OS will synchronize and show pm.

If the virtual machine time drifts and needs to be reset, VMtools periodically checks the time once per minute to ensure the time drift isn’t off.

Run as root user, should show if it's active or not...

Hi kgpunix, Hi All, We are running SLES 11 on VMWare . I have tried to update the Time manually with NTP Server and it worked for some time .For these situations you can use the VMware Tools Time Sync.There are a couple of things to keep in mind when using the “Synchronize guest time with host” option.These commands should run from the VMware Tools Install directory. After that the time is getting delayed on the Server.After that the time is getting delayed on the Server.
