The only good way of keeping time pretty set is to set up an NTP sync on the image to go off at decently constant rate (once every 3 hours or so). the vmware-tools will not synchronize the system clock. I heard of someone trying to change the clock in BSD to only use the hardware clock as VMWare can reset that but never heard anything beyond that. -Sean_______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
