Is it possible to change the time on VMware 5.5 host ? I can't see any button to make the change.

I would recommend you set your time to an external time source, and then also set your Windows VMs to sync with Active Directory time, and deselect sync with Host.

Click on the Host then on the configuration tab. Then click Time Configuration. You can set the time here. Be sure and set up the NTP server too you can use pool.ntp.org
Make sure it is set to Start and Stop with Host.
