In an EC2 instance (Xen Virtualized) is it possible to disable time sync on a Guest VM by Host VM.

I found that it can be done on Linux instance by modifying xen.independent_wallclock=1

Is there any similar way to do it for Windows?

There is no configuration to do that task in Windows.

We achieved it by having our own NTP server with required time set & configured the Windows instance to sync time from our own NTP server.
