VMware ESXi NTP Time Servers

Just a little reminder to those of you who are setting up ESXi servers.

REMEMBER TO SETUP TIME SYNCING!

Easiest way to do this is if your ESXi hosts can get to the internet, goto your host configuration tab, select time and date, then enter the following addresses for the NTP servers.

0.vmware.pool.ntp.org
1.vmware.pool.ntp.org
2.vmware.pool.ntp.org

Or any standard time server should do, but those are easiest for me to remember.

I’ll post on how to use Windows as a time server for hosts that don’t have internet access in a later article, that one’s going to require some screen shots.
