I have a Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit installed in VMware workstation on a Windows 8 machine.
I have followed VMware's recommendations to use NTP and not use the guest tools for timesync.
I have installed ntp and replaced my
/etc/ntp.conf file with this:
tinker panic 0 restrict 127.0.0.1 restrict default kod nomodify notrap server 0.vmware.pool.ntp.org server 1.vmware.pool.ntp.org server 2.vmware.pool.ntp.org driftfile /var/lib/ntp/drift
The problem is that I still get a massive timedrift. After 2 or 3 hours of booting the VM, I have lost 4 minutes. By the end of the day, the VM is 30 minutes to 40 minutes behind.
What have I missed in my NTP configuration?
