I have a Unix O/S running as a guest under a hypervisor on a Linux host. The guest OS clock is 2s adrift from the host after 24 hours. I'd like to keep clocks in sync to less than a second for ease of log-analysis etc.
I plan to run
ntpdate hostservername hourly in cron. Is this reasonable or have I missed a more obvious solution?
Host: CentOS 5.7
Hypervisor: VMware Server 2
Guest: SCO OpenServer 5.0.7
