I’ve been working with VMware vSphere 6.5 recently on a few projects and had to make some minor tweaks to the vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA) to configure NTP and time synchronization. Here is a quick guide on how to change the NTP settings.
The change can’t be made from logging into the normal vCenter Server Appliance web client you would use for managing the cluster, you have to log directly into the vCenter appliance.
I’ve been doing a fair bit of VMware patching recently so thought it would be useful to highlight the current and past versions of ESXi and how to check which version you are running. The latest version is 6.7 released 17 April, 2018. Since then there have been a few patches.
Below is a snapshot of the current versions as of 18 December 2018.
As with any new software test in a development environment first before upgrading to a new major version, let others lead the way on the bleeding edge and wait for Patch 1 to be released.
