    I ran into trouble with my web server ispconfig2 system which is installed on esxi system. I return the system to a known good config using snap shot manager. Now my server is reporting the date to be that of the time when i created the snap shot. Any ideas?

    Wel, if yo haven't set any automatic updating of the time and date, then it's correct.

    If the system runs on linux, try installing ntpd, it will update the date/time for you automagically.

    1)On the right side of the Taskbar at the bottom of your system screen, double-click directly on the time. The Date/Time control panel will automatically open.
    2)To set the date, click on the correct day, month and year.
    3)To set the time, enter the correct time in the box.
    4)To set your time zone, click on the Time Zone tab, then select the correct zone from the drop-down menu.

    Here is how tech support at mcAfee solved the problem.. Basically you’re simply finding the ip address for the time server and adding it to your list of trusted ip addresses in the firewall program…..
    Double click on your clock icon at lower right corner of the desktop screen and select “Internet Time” on the tabs in your Date and Time window that pops up
    Ensure Automatically update with the internet time server is selected.
    Observe the name of the Server field and write it down.
    Now click Start, Run and type “cmd” and press enter. Command prompt window is opened. Type ping and press enter. The ping results may return “Request timed out” if the server is set not to respond to ping attempts.
    The first line displays:
    Pinging [IP Address] with 32 bytes of data:
    Write down the [IP Address] and close the command window.
    For example given, the ip address would be…
    Now double-click the Red “M” icon in the systray to open the SecurityCenter.
    From the Basic Menu.
    Click Internet & Network and click Configure which is on the center right.
    click Firewall protection is enabled and click Advanced.
    Click Trusted and Banned IPs.
    Select Trusted IP Addresses from the drop-down menu.
    Click “Add and select Single IP Address” then type the Server IP Address ( in the IP Address: field.
    Click OK then click Yes.
    Close the Firewall Window, then close the SecurityCenter.
    Please restart your system to take the changes get affected.
    Check your time and update it to see that the changes have fixed your problem.
