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. Example: 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 time. 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?
