Description

Virtual Box host : Solaris Nevada, and Windows XP Guest : Solaris Nevada build 85 with guest additions.

I have been seeing lot of time resets recently on my solaris guest, Periodically Solaris guest sees time reset to 1st Jan 1970.

This causes serious inconveniences to secure connections like IPSEC and ssh to behave strangely.

This I normally see when the guest is resumed from saved state. And the time remains in the saved state aswell and resets periodically to 1st jan 1970.

For example running date command every second on the guest produces an output similar to below.
