Hi @JKerouac ,
Can you try factory resetting your box? Then, once reset please try the following:
1- Disable the time on the Vmware
2- Go to VM host directory and add below lines to the vmx file, to completely disable the time sync
time.synchronize.continue = "FALSE"
time.synchronize.restore = "FALSE"
time.synchronize.resume.disk = "FALSE"
time.synchronize.shrink = "FALSE"
time.synchronize.tools.startup = "FALSE"
3- Start the VM from : Power -> Power on to Firmware
4- from BIOS, change date to 01/01/2021
5- Save and Exit from BIOS
6- VM will come up and will not power off anymore, you can set NTP on the PA VM to have the correct time.
7- If you shutdown the VM and want to restart it again, repeat from step 3.
