When I log into vSphere portal and look at my VMs, the uptime will reflect a different time than what it is showing on the VM when I remote into it. I will restart the machine and then refresh the vSphere portal, but will not update. I have verified that VMtools is running on these VMs and is showing as current under version. I searched online and did find the link below, but not clear if this needs to be ran every time (which is not feasible for me) and/or if this will fix my issue? The Guest OS will vary (Server 2019, 16 & 12). We do have a few 2008 R2s, but they are going away.
Monitoring software shows incorrect system uptime for Windows 2008 R2 or later on hardware version 1...
What do you mean under vSphere portal? vCenter?
Yes, sorry vCenter.
