Hello.

We're running a v virtual nw 6.5.8 server on an ESX 3.5 update 4 system.The
guest uses one CPU. In the vmwtool and the vmx file the is server is
cofigured not to use the esx-server time.
The synchronization often lost on the machine.
Here's the timesync.cfg:

Configured Sources = ON
DEBUG = 7
Polling Count = 3
Polling Interval = 60
Service Advertising = ON
Short Interval = 30
Synchronization Radius = 2000
Type = SECONDARY
NTP Client Port = 0

# TIMESYNC Configured time source list

TIME SOURCE = 192.xxx.xxx.xxx:123

Here is the logfile:

The timesync server is physical nw6.5.8 machine.

During the server is out of time, the machine is very slow. After
establishing time again, all is well.

What can I do to minimize these effects?

Thanks in advance for aour answers.

Best regards.

Dirk
