You can configure whether the clock on the guest operating system is synchronized with the clock on the host.

If you turn on this advanced setting for time synchronization, the VMware Tools service, which runs inside the guest operating system, checks once every minute to determine whether the clocks on the guest and host operating systems still match. If not, the clock on the guest operating system is synchronized to match the clock on the host.

For more information about how VMware Tools time synchronization works and for instructions to turn it off completely, see the document called Installing and Configuring VMware Tools.

Disable other periodic time synchronization mechanisms. Most guests have clock synchronization turned on by default.
