HI there I installed a CentOS VM on Hyper-V server and am quite confused on the time settings. my Hyper-V is set to (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US&Canada), and when installed the CentOS VM, on TimeZone selection, I chose System clock uses UTC and America/New York. everything looks alright except the clock is showing (UTC-05:00-04:00) EDT.
I am new to Hyper-V and Linux VM, but i think what happens is the Linux VM takes the Hyper-V host time literally as UTC, since i choose America/New York timezone, it does the UTC-4 (with daylight saving), so the clock is 4 hours behind. I am not sure how to fix this. i reset the clock but when rebooted the VM starts with the wrong time again..
how should this work? do i have to set the Hyper-V server to "real" UTC time? this doesn't seem right, and i am hoping i am missing something simple. i didn't find anything related to this yet, so any help/insight is much appreciated. i wouldn't think this is a new problem?
also i disabled the time synchrnization integration service as i haven't installed the integration service on the guest yet. Thanks for your help.
