The Options tab shows the Miscellaneous Options.

  • Time synchronization between the virtual machine and the host operating system
  • Note: You can synchronize the time in the guest operating system with the time on the host operating system only when you set the clock in the guest operating system to a time earlier than the time set on the host.

    Under some circumstances, the virtual machine may synchronize time with the host even though this item is not selected. If you want to disable time synchronization completely, open the virtual machine's configuration file (.vmx) in a text editor and set the following options to FALSE.

    tools.syncTime
    tools.synchronize.restore
    time.synchronize.resume.disk
    time.synchronize.continue
    time.synchronize.shrink
