One of those ways is that you should not try and use libvirt to manage AHV. The only supported method will be via our APIs. Should you decide to develop against Nutanix AHV, check out developer.nutanix.com and our published supported APIs. You may also want to keep an eye our for our announcements around automation. You may be aware that we acquired a company called Calm.IO late last year. Lots of really cool stuff coming out of that acquisition this year.

Where in the GUI are you not seeing the correct time? Looking at my AHV host and CVM they are both NTP synced and set with a PT time zone. Im actually in ET and Prism shows my locat ET correctly.. I have not set any Time Zone parameters. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/nutanix-us/attachment/1790iE6D5227FEDA35475.png[/img]
AHV (more specifically the virtual BIOS) will pass UTC to the guest OS. Any reason you cannot use NTP + Windows TZ setting? If those guests are in a domain, the clock is synced with the AD server automatically. Adding alternate or external NTP and TZ is just a matter of group policy. Windows OS (and most others) run on UTC and just use TZ for display (human consumption) purposes.
