Solved Time server out of sync -6 hours when server reboots

I have a server that was virtualized in to vSphere. As a physical server it had no issues with time drift. However, once it was virtualized the server loses 6 hours whenever it reboots. The time zone is correct and I have toggled the setting that allows the VM to get time from the host to no effect. I have set a time server as well but that doesn't seem to have resolved the issue either.

Thank you,

Leto the just

When it comes to vSphere time issues, I do not recommend having a time server there or making the server rely on vSphere to keep its time accurate. This has been a bug I have experienced myself when it comes to vSphere.

Within the operating system setup, there was an option there for setting the time of the server, did you check the option there for relying on a server for time accuracy?

For all time issues I would recommend this time sync system tool for inter-network time maintenance. It works for us for a year both on physical PCs and "issued" vSphere instances. Hope it helps.
