The system date in my Linux VM does not match the host system’s date. How do I fix this?

You can get the VM’s time synced with the host system by starting the VM, then in the upper-left corner, click Player->Manage->Virtual Machine Settings… Then click Options tab, VMware Tools, and check the “Synchronize guest time with host” checkbox. Then click OK.

You can do the same thing from the VMware Player start-up screen by clicking on the desired VM, then click, “Edit virtual machine settings,” then click the Options tab…

After you either reset the VM or power it off then back on, the time should be the same as on the host system.
