I have set up a small network that does notcannot have connectivity outside of it’s LAN. There are 2 ESX hosts connected to a SAN hosting a number of Windows Server VM’s in a Domain. As I do not have external connectivity I have configured the PDCe to be the primary time source and configured both ESX hosts to get their time from the PDCe. In 1 week the PDCe has lost 11 seconds. The ESX host that the PDCe us running on has on offset of 0.037 but the other host has an offset of -3597 ms. All other statistics when running watch ntpq -p on both hosts are very similar.
1. Giving the fact that I cannot connect to an external time source is this the correct configuration?
2. Can anyone advise how to troubleshoot why my ESX host is losing time against the PDCe?
This is a live network so I can see the time sync becoming an issue over the coming months.
