Hello All, How to solve the issue of VMware Player incorrect time sync, When I suspend a virtual machine, the next time when I resume that virtual machine, it synchronizes the time to adjust it to the host. If the host is having wrong timing, so as the VMware Player, Please guide me.

Thanks,

In case your host time is correct, you can set following .vmx configuration file option to clear the problem:

"tools.syncTime = true"

"tools.syncTime.Period = 60"

This will allow synchronization of time every minute.

Else, you can opt for VMware Tools, which allows you to synchronize the time between the Mac and the virtual machine. In Fusion 5.x, the Synchronize time option is located at Settings > Advanced. This is applicable to all guest operating systems. 

In VMware Fusion 4.x and earlier:

 Windows

  1. Click Start > Control Panel.
  2. Double-click the VMware Tools icon.

    • Windows XP: You may need to click Switch to Classic View from the task pane on the left.
    • Windows Vista / 7: You may need to use the search box in the top-right corner.
  3. Select Time synchronization between the virtual machine and the host operating system.
  4. Click OK

Linux
1. Open a command prompt and run the following command.
vmware-toolbox

This will open the VMware Tools Properties window:

2. Select Time synchronization between the virtual machine and the host operating system.

  1. Click Close.

Hi!

Here am I to provide you additional solutions or options for solving this problem.

You can choose to either disable the time synchronization or editing the time synchronization to the correct one.

1. Disable the time synchronization = to disable, firstly you just need to put the configuration parameters using the client called vSphere client. Then, after open it, you should select the virtual machine and disable it. Next, choose Edit Settings that is located on the Summary tab. Next, click on General after opened the Options tab. Open the Configuration Parameters. Choose Add Row action. You need to put zero in all fields of information in table given.

2. Editing time synchronization = In order to edit the the time set, you must set the following option tools. SynTime. Period = 60, according to your time in seconds.

I hope that this perhaps assist you in synchronizing the time in VMware Player.
