I have noticed a problem with time display on some images when they are run on 
VMware ESXi hosts vs. VMware Server 1.08 hosts.

A Windows 7 image reports the correct time when run on a VMware Server 1.08 
host, however the same image running on an ESXi host reports the time 4 hours 
ahead (GMT), although it says EDT.
Fri Jul  8 11:52:05 EDT 2011
Fri Jul  8 15:52:05 EDT 2011

When I connect to the ESXi host via the vShpere client, the time is the correct 
EDT time, however when I ssh to the ESXi host and run date, it displays the GMT 

Interestingly, a WinXP image displays the correct EDT time on the ESXi host, as 
well as an Ubuntu image.

Has anyone else seen this behavior with ESXi hosts?
