Hello,

 

To Check and Set the System and Hardware times follow the below cmd from the cli of the ESXi host. This should help you to find the time without restarting the server.

 

To see the current time:

esxcli hardware clock get
esxcli system time get

 

To set the correct time:

esxcli hardware clock set
esxcli system time set

options:
-d|–day = Day; -M|–month = Month; -y|–year = Year; -H|–hour = Hour; -m|–min = Minute; -s|–sec = Second

 

Note:

ESXi uses UTC time and does not support changing time zones.

 

Thanks,

I work for HP
