Vmware ntp not updating is kenny chesney still dating skylene montgomery
The domain controller holding the PDC Emulator FSMO role is normally configured to get time from an authoritative NTP time source, and syncs time with all the other DCs in the domain.The domain clients in each site sync time from the DCs in their local site, maintaining a relatively close synchronization of time across the domain.I've seen this problem with three different clients lately, so I figured this might be a pervasive enough issue to blog about.The trouble happens when the VMware v Sphere, ESX or ESXi host does not have an accurate source of time, or time "drifts" due to an inaccurate system clock module.Rick Vanover is a software strategy specialist for Veeam Software, based in Columbus, Ohio.Rick has years of IT experience and focuses on virtualization, Windows-based server administration, and system hardware.
Edit2: Aaand the problem seems to have resolved itself. I am assuming you are using a Windows time source, see the below KB. specific time servers, then. There have been time issues on various occasions with ESXi (nice going, Vmware, such a basic thing too) but are patched.
All domain computers sync time when they start up on the domain, regardless of how far out of sync they were.
I have not seen this type of behavior with Hyper-V, only v Sphere, ESX and ESXi hosts.
I recommend that the time changes be done while the host is in maintenance mode or at least with no production virtual machines on it.
When this change is implemented into a host, it also must be noted that the change is not instant; this is still the case even if the NTP service on the ESXi host is restarted.
