The issue I am having is with the server clock keep the correct time. Here is
what I have: I am running a host server (Compaq ProLiant DL580, G2) with four
Virtual Machines (using VMware) hanging off of it. Three of the four VM'c
clocks keep perfect time with the host server. The fourth VM loses several
seconds (even minutes) consistantly. At time the clock will even stop for 3-6
seconds.

I know in VMware you can choose to have the virtual machine synchronize with
the host, I have done this and all it does is synch up every 2-3 minutes.
This does not fix the problem with the clock losing time. Is anyone familiar
with VMware and what might cause the clock to have this problem?
