VM server`s clock is not synced with primary domain controllers clock

Hi, up until recently, there was never a problem with time sync to an external ntp server, but recently our print server (VM) will not allow any shares when connected to such ntp server. I now have to revert to enabling windows time service again to allow the server to function correctly and unchecking the NTP radio button in VMWare tools.

However, all other VM`s are fine syncing with the external NTP server (s).I`ve checked all the obvious but need help please! What could have caused this and is there anything I should be looking at speciffically?Incidently, we run two v3.5 hosts with 2 share datastores and 10 VM`s I said, it is only the one server that is problematic. Cheers!

Have any changes been made to your problem machine? Sounds like something has changed specifically to that machine only...

You could either try:

Turn up the Kerberos & System event logging to see what's going on

If all else fails then rebuild it!
