Time Sync Issues in Domain

I am having issues with the time sync on one machine in my LAN.

I have two group policies on my Domain Controller (windows sbs 2011). one which sets the DC to get the time from time.windows.com and also makes the DC a Time server.  The second policy sets all other domain computers to get their time sync from the DC.

This works for everywhere except for one machine. It is a Virtual Machine hosted on VMWARE ESXi 5. The time sync works initially for a couple of days then goes awry. The biggest problem is this particular machine hosts our clocking in software. which means when the time goes wrong on here it makes all the clocking in machines have the wrong time.

I have run various commands   w32tm /resync /rediscover,  w32tm /resync /nowait  this sometimes fixes the problem but not always. i have enabled logging for the time service on the Vm that keeps going wrong it is attached.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Make sure VMware Tools are installed in the guest machine and enable Time Sync in the Tools setting.  I think that will fix your problem.

I had to disable timesync with VPN clients and adjust some settings in AD GPO
