Changing NTP Server in ESX 3.5 fails with error “failed to change host configuration”

March 30, 2009 — Leave a comment

When changing NTP server settings you get an error saying “failed to change host configuration” This is usually because the zone has been set correctly via the ESX installation.

If you Check /ect/sysconfig/clock it should read Europe/London or your relevant zone. Once you have changed this setting you may need to reboot.
