Windows running the PV drivers will also sync time. If you created the guest from a template, check to make sure the timezone is correct, as most of the Oracle supplied templates are set to America/East.
This is the first time that I create a virtual machine using OVM manager and I was surprised to see that it has a correct date but a wrong time, eventhough though both "server and manager" have correct time.
Yes this machine was created from template and it's a Linux machine.
Does OVM manager let me change the time zone? or I have to change it from the machine after I log in to it?
I will also try to create a machine from ISO and will see if the time comes right.
Just run system-config-date inside the newly created machine. As I said, the templates we ship are set to Americas/East, so you'll want to change that to the correct timezone.
Thanks :-) I will try it soon
