ESX 3.5 – NTP Time Server Restart

Posted on Updated on

I found the following commands to work really well when you need to restart your NTP sevice on your ESX server.

Logon to the console level..

Commands >> Effect
# service ntpd restart >> Restart the service.
# chkconfig –level 345 ntpd on >> Enable the NTP daemon to autostart when the server is rebooted.
# hwclock –systohc >> Set the local hardware clock to the NTP synchronized local system time.

#hwclock –show {Press Enter} << Shows you the current clock
