Configure a common NTP server source for synchronized operation of vCenter Single Sign-On and log correlation.

Synchronized systems over NTP are essential for vCenter Single Sign-On certificate validity, and for the validity of other certificates. Consistent system clocks are critical for the proper operation of the components in the SDDC because in certain cases they rely on vCenter Single Sign-on.

NTP also makes it easier to correlate log files from multiple sources during troubleshooting, auditing, or inspection of log files to detect attacks.
