Change time zone on esxi 6.7 host

Jump to solution

Hello. Is there a way to change the time  zone on a ESXi host?

I try to generate a certificate for vCenter using my own CA, and when I import the certificate, I get an error. I did not get the error, sorry, but I have read that it could be related with the time zone. The ESXi hosts and vCenter have a different time zone then the CA has.

Best regards!

you cannot set time zone on esxi host. You can either set the time manually or configure NTP server.

You can use NTP, but you cannot change the timezone on ESXi.

Hello.

And thank you for your answers. I have configured the NTP server. And it does work. the strange thing is that in the vsphere client I still see UTC.

In vCenter, it shows the correct time, CEST.

Is this the way it should be?
