I am using esxi 6.7u3 and i have no time server in my network. my vcenter and my all esxi servers configured to use pdc emulator(a vm on them) as ntp server. vmtools sync status on domain controllers disabled with 7 advanced time command as said in this KB and even except domain controller from vmotion to prevent time sync with destination esxi.
unfortunately when i configure esxi time manually or as ntp client to get time from domain controllers ,esxi time change to incorrect time after a while.
what can i do to configure esxi,vcenter and domain controllers with correct time. I am wondering if i could set domain controllers manually and disable ntp client on them.
what are differences between hardware, system and physicals server clock when we are speaking about ESXi? where do they use?
