I have a 2 blades with vmware 5.0.0 ( 623860 ) and I want configure the the ntp synchronization with the domain controller.
I have the same configuration on other 3 blades with version ESXi 5.0.0 (1311175) that works very well.
The ntp.conf file is exactly the same that is on esxi server but on the first does not work.
The following is the syslog.log file after restarting the ntp service:
2015-12-15T00:45:56Z root: ntpd Stopping ntpd

I suspect that the ntp server does not synchronize because there is a too large difference of time between the servers.. but I don't see any clue on the log..
the differences time is about 8 hours
Anyone could help me ?
and can I manually change the ntp time also with so big difference of hours ?
