If like me you forgot to set the NTP server correctly when deploying the appliances
The following demonstrates how to add\change\modify an NTP source. As this is for my home lab i will be using the following – http://www.pool.ntp.org/en/
- Open a console or SSH to the vCenter Server Appliance
- Login with Root Credentials
- Run the following to add an NTP Server ntp.server.add –servers ntp.pool.org
- Run the command to enable the NTP Server timesync.set –mode NTP
To remove a configure NTP Server ntp.server.delete –servers ntp.pool.org
To verify the settings ntp.get
Note: that the command uses double dashes (- -) however they may show as a single line on my blog.
Below is a screen shot of a configured system
