Configuring NTP using PowerCLI

Thanks to one of my team mate for asking some command line questions which made me dig deeper and try to find out how to work with ntpd service using command line.

1) Connecting to your ESXi 

Connect-VIServer (name of your ESXi host)


2) While Connecting it will prompt you for username and password specify the username and password for ESXi.


3) To add NTP

Add-VmHostNtpServer -VMHost $esx -NtpServer servername


4) To check if NTP is configured Properly

Get-VMHostNtpServer
