How to do KVM Clock Sync?

These are the instructions to fix a KVM guest that has its clock jumped ahead a few hours after it is created/started.
The clock will eventually get corrected after ntpd gets running, but the server may run up to 1/2 hour on skewed time. The skewed time may cause issues with scheduled jobs
Update the Virtual Guests clock setting. This will prevent the clock on the virtual guest from jumping forward.

FROM the DOM-0 (KVM Host Server)
#vi /Path/to/server/configuration_file.xml
replace line:
<clock offset='utc'/>
<clock offset='localtime'/>
