why do you not have VMware Tools installed and Sync-ing time with the host?

Hanccocka,  good question, I did not install the software and the person who did is gone and left very little documentation.  I would not know how to install the VMware Tools on linux if my life depended on it.

What do I look for to see if the process was successful?

It's beneficial to have VMware Tools installed not just for Time Sync.
