VMWAre Preventing the Clock from Running Too Quickly

For VMWare 1.0.x 1. Install vmware-tools on virtual host:
1.1 In VMWare console:

select menu VM->Install VMWare Tools (virtual computer have to be switched on)
1.2 Mount virtual CD-ROM
#mount /dev/cdrom /mnt #cp /mnt/VMwareTools-1.0.9-156507.i386.rpm /root #rpm -ivh /root/VMwareTools-1.0.9-156507.i386.rpm
#umount /dev/cdrom
1.3 After package installation
The tools tried to compile the necessary drivers. You have to have the headers of running kernel available. The operation must completed successfully.
(Installation of kernel headers:#yum install kernel-devel) Check if vmware-tools running:
# /etc/init.d/vmware-tools status vmware-guestd is running
2. Stop virtual machine and set up time synchronization #init 0
On the host server make the following changes in virtual machine configuration file:
#cd /vms/linux-vm - place where VM files stored
#vi v-linux.vmx Change line tools.syncTime = "FALSE" to tools.syncTime = "TRUE". If line tools.syncTime is absent we have to add it...
