Security Audit – Set time source

For logging to be valid a time source (ntp server) should be set on each host

To configure or change the setting see the post Reconfigure NTP Servers by esx cluster as this will save you heaps of time…:-)


This configuration can then be validated through powerCLI or vCenter

Get-VMHost <hostname> | Select Name, @{N=”NTP”;E={Get-VMHostNtpServer $_}}

Leave out the <hostname> and it will run on all hosts in vcenter
