We have a Windows Domain , all servers are virtualized running on VMware ESXi 5.1 .
Each Virtual Guest is configured to receive time from the host configured through edit settings VMware Tools "Syncronize guest time with host"
I understand now that this could be bad for a domain controller, what is my best way to synchronize time ?
Also each of my ESXi host computers are configured to receive time from NTP servers (220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168). In Vsphere Client NTP client is running yet my 6 host machines do not have the same time some are off by more than a minute. How do I properly configure NTP and make sure it is working ?
I have Windows guests Server 2003 / 2008 and 2012 . Where should they be getting time ? from the DC's ? how do I force this to work ?
Refer below link to disable host to VM server.
You just need to configure NTP on PDC role holder server
When rebooting a vCenters 6.0 and try to connect using vSphere Client we get this issue "Invalid URL: The hostname could not parsed."
When we get this error we need to do some changes in the vCenter advanced settings to fix the issue.
