Using host clock or NTP server

Jump to solution

For a small lab where I don't have a dedicated NTP infrastructure or an NTP server to point to, is it better to have orchestrator use the host time or an external NTP server like 0.us.pool.ntp.org?  (My esxi hosts point to 0.us.pool.ntp.org)

Thanks!

For me I like to have one or two devices on my network that reach out to the internet for NTP. Then internally I point everything to those NTP servers that I have internally.

For my suggestion I would use your esxi host and have VMware tools sync the time on your VMs.
