Does anyone know why my ESX 7 server cannot sync its time with a Windows 10 time server? I confirmed the time server works, and the firewall is open on ESX7 and Windows 10, but the time is not the same, its always 2 minutes like it was before, which is what I’m trying to fix. ntpq -pn shows it sits in INIT all the time.
[root@local:~] ntpq -pn
remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset jitter
192.168.1.16 .INIT. 16 u – 256 0 0.000 +0.000 0.000
Any guidance would be great, it simply doesn’t work. Its difficult to test a UDP connect to 192.168.1.16 at port 123 so I’m only 99% sure thats open. other machines with NTP client testing tools can get the time at 192.168.1.16 perfectly fine so I’m sure its ok.
