Disabling time synchronization in VMware Player

Today I was preparing a hands-on labs for an upcoming training. Somehow I need to disable the time synchronization so that the sprint timeline can be reflected accordingly.

To completely disable time synchronization in the guest, perform the following procedures:

1, Open the virtual machine’s configuration file (the .vmx file) using a text editor. Set these options to “FALSE”. If the entries do not exist, add them.

Note: “FALSE” = disabled, “TRUE” = enabled.

tools.syncTime = “FALSE”
time.synchronize.continue = “FALSE”
time.synchronize.restore = “FALSE”
time.synchronize.resume.disk = “FALSE”
time.synchronize.shrink = “FALSE”
time.synchronize.tools.startup = “FALSE”
time.synchronize.tools.enable = “FALSE”
time.synchronize.resume.host = “FALSE”
