hi guys,
Got a esxi 6.7 server
got virtual machine which is dc -server 2016std

time always runs 5 mins slow.
i checked the w32tm /query /status - it was synching from local cmos battery

i tried changing it to external ntp time sources, but still dc takes time from local cmos battery.  it never changed to external ntp server.
in esx server, under virtual machine - synchronise guest time with host is not enabled too.

used these commands:
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:"0.aus.pool.ntp.org,0x1 1.aus.pool.ntp.org,0x1 2.aus.pool.ntp.org,0x1 3.aus.pool.ntp.org,0x1"   - to set ntp server


used this to reset time service to defualt :
net stop w32
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time

tried restarting time server - net stop w32time && net start w32time

the client machines take time from DC .. but dc not taking time from external ntp.
what else could be the problem. how do i make it to take time from external source ? ? any help would be great.
