There may be a vmware issue - I do not know.

I thought that one had to "do something" to get ntpd to work under a vmware
instance - otherwise the clock was something the "primary" OS instance

I may be confused on this point.

You don't need either of the above 2 lines.

You may or may not need the above line.

Kaz> server iburst burst

Are you *sure* you want to use burst?

What is the output of 'ntpq -p' ?
