less than 1 minute read

Would you like to learn how to set date and time using the Vmware ESXi NTP feature? In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to configure date and time using NTP on a Vmware ESXi server. This tutorial was tested on Vmware ESXi 6.7

First, you need to access the Vmware web interface. After a successful login into ESXi go to Manage > System > Time & date. Click on Edit.

edit-ntp

Select Start and stop with host option.

Insert desired NTP servers comma separated, i.e.:

0.ru.pool.ntp.org, 1.ru.pool.ntp.org, 2.ru.pool.ntp.org, 3.ru.pool.ntp.org

Now, we need to start the NTP service. Click on the Actions button. Select the NTP service menu. Click on the Start option.

start-ntp

The NTP will start immediately.

Congratulations! You successfully finished the Vmware ESXi NTP configuration.
