Time difference on vCenter and Hosts

Jump to solution

Situation:

All of the hosts on vcenter have the same time, but the vcenter time is behind the hosts by over 1 minute.

Time synchronization mode is set to NTP

If it is configured and it's the same as the esxi hosts the time should be the same
If it's not configured or it is a different NTP server time will not be the same (I'm leaning towards this point)

Hope it works

Hello, hope you are doing fine

Is NTP source configured on the vcenter?
You can do it by typing https://VCENTERFQDN:5480

Warm regards

Thanks for your quick response Nachogonzalez.

For the sake of furthering my education as I am very new to all this, could you give me the outcome if yes NTP source is configured and also NO it is not configured?

Thank you.
