VMWare WS 14 timesync broken? |VMware Communities

I noticed every now and then the clock will be wrong by about 1min, but be back a very short time afterwards.


Turns out that this happens EVERY 60 SECONDS, but only lasts for a VERY short time.


The following shell script will alert for time running backwards, in my setup I can see that about every minute in my VM



LAST=$(date +%s)

while true ; do

    NEW=$(date +%s)

    if [[ $NEW < $LAST ]] ; then

        echo “TIMEWARP $(date)”



    sleep 0.001



I’m running my Host on Windows 10 1809,

my VM is running Debian 10, using the open-vm-tools coming with the OS.

VMware is 14.1.7 build-12989993


To fix the problem: turn of VMware time synchronization, use NTP
