If the actual time of the cloud proxy server is behind or ahead of the current time, you might face configuration or installation failures.


  • Agent installation fails


  • Ensure that you configure network time protocol settings, or
  • Run the following command to update the time immediately from an NTP server: ntpdate time.vmware.com
    Ensure that you have stopped the ntpd service before you run the ntpdate command.
    Note: The system time takes about five minutes to sync with the NTP server time.
