I have run the "date" command on kvm Guest OS  and it shows me the time which is way out of sync from host.


I see that clocksource for KVM guest is "timebase" but it is not in sync with host. I tried running ntpd which comes with busybox on guest in hope

to get a time which is in sync with guest,but could not see anything after running below command.


#ntpd -q -p host_ipaddress.


Ping is working between guest and host using TAP.


Would any one point me out some way to get synced time on guest OS with respect to host?
