Clock synchronization when running Domino in VMware environment
When running a Lotus® Domino® server in a Windows® VMware® virtual machine, you notice that the system clock time reported by the Microsoft® Windows virtual machine does not match the time reported by Domino.
This problem can occur if you run the Windows Time service in conjunction with another time synchronization component, specifically the VMware Tools time synchronization feature.
To avoid the problem, use only the VMware Tools time synchronization feature, as recommended by VMware in their Knowledge Base article titled "VMware Time Sync and Windows Time Service."
The article contains instructions outlining how to enable the VMware Tools time synchronization and disable the Windows Time service on the guest operating system.
