Guest time of day not updated when resuming from a saved virtual machine

Reported by: rlk Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: guest additions
Version: VirtualBox 2.0.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Solaris
Host type: Linux


If I save and then resume a guest, the time of day is not updated in the guest. It continues from the point at which I saved the guest. So if I save the guest at noon, and then resume it at 6:00 PM, the guest still thinks it's noon.

I am running ntpd on my host. I have the guest configured to use the host ( -- using NAT networking) as a time server, and I manually resync the time, it fixes up the time. My understanding is that the guest additions are supposed to reset the time when a machine is resumed.

Host is OpenSUSE 11.0.

Guest is OpenSolaris (currently at onnv_98, but this behavior isn't new). Using Guest Additions that came with 2.0.2.
