We’ve been having some timing issues in our environment on and off. It seems that some machines are losing their time configuration and are attempting to get their time set from the local CMOS battery, which is the host that the VM resides. I thought I had read somewhere that we should run C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Tools\vmtoolsd.exe timesync disable.
My question is: Does this only need to be done on the remote site domain controllers, or does it have to be done on every single domain joined virtual machine?
Is it going to completely stop the machine from trying to check time using local CMOS, or do I have to go through every single VM, edit the VMX, and set the options so that time synchronization is false?
