    Default current time via SOAP?

    Hi, is there a way to ask a zimbra server what it thinks the current time is using SOAP? I can't seem to find a method that returns it.

    Preauth:
    Preauth - Zimbra :: Wiki
    is vulnerable to mismatched server times so I want to have a background cron job that compares the time on the client box with that on the zimbra box.

    Of course it can be done via ssh, but if I can avoid creating a special-purpose account on the zimbra server, so much the better!

    ntp is installed on both server and clients but they're virtual machines and their time can get out of sync quickly if ntp stops working for any reason.

    Is this VMware (or perhaps even if it's not)? I assume you're following the Timekeeping Best Practice?
