WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Updated March 14, 2017


The VMan appliance is out of sync with the system time against the Data source that it monitors and it has no direct internet access


Vman 6.x and later


  1. SSH to your Vman (you can putty or access the VM console directly).
  2. Login using 'admin' account
  3. Type: # sudo su
  4. Type: # date (This should give you the current data and time)
  5. Copy the result of 'date' and type the command below provided that on this new line you update the correct time.
    # sudo date -s "Wed Nov 2 15:45:56 UTC 2016" (This is just a sample, replace it with the correct time that matches your Data Sources such as Host, Vcenter, etc.)
  6. Type date again to confirm the result.
