My guest VM having time issue. The time seems faster than the host time about 20-30 minutes. I manually changed the time in order to make it match with the host time. I hope that someone could guide me how/what can I do so that the time between guest could same with host time.

For a Linux host, first install the DKMS (Dynamic Kernel Module Support) package on the guest machine (source):

$ sudo apt-get install dkms

Then install Guest Additions into guest system:

$ sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-additions

Also, here are descriptions of some commands to tune VirtualBox time synchronization.
