Have you configure the Time Zone and Network Time Protocol ?

This seems like the default time for the Clock!

Login to the Appliance as admin, and select Time Settings, and Time Sync, and either select Host time to sync with or an External Time Source.

i guess I just had to wait , I checked and the VCAC core appliance time is set to "use host time"

the time on the VCAC CORE is set to use host time

ESXi time keeping, and NTP seems a little buggy, and it keep stopping!

when you mean set the time to external for all , that means the windows IAAS server , the DC and vcenter all should be external

Yes, that's correct.

and that is what I did , and it all works fine now

pointed the vApps to the nist.time.gov via IP ( just in case they could not resolve the name)

and used the w32tm

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:"time.nist.gov" /reliable:yes /update

then went into the registry to make sure it changed , I then set all the time to approximately the same time manually on the windows boxes , rebooted and all is good !!
