What are the limits of running NTP servers in virtual machines?
I was wondering if virtualizing NTP is okay. I have a VMware ESXi 5.0 box, and I want to virtualize my router since the original hardware bit it. The only thing is I have read in places that virtualizing NTP (which my router performed) was not good because you won't be as accurate as a hardware clock. Is this true?
My router was pfSense, it ran the OpenNTPD server and was pointed at
tock.usno.navy.mil. Because I am syncing with a higher NTP server is the accuracy of the hardware that important?
