Ok... Well, I rebooted the server, and still it's an hour behind: kermit# /usr/sbin/ntpdate -v -b 0.us.pool.ntp.org 28 Mar 23:17:15 ntpdate: ntpdate 4.2.0-a Mon Aug 7 17:44:27 UTC 2006 (1) 28 Mar 23:17:17 ntpdate: step time server 184.108.40.206 offset 3580.00057
Any ideas now? If the CMOS clock is off, could this be affecting the operation? -----Original Message----- From: Chuck Swiger [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Wednesday, March 28, 2007 12:02 PM To: Don O'Neil Cc: FreeBSD Mailing List Subject: Re: Time changed back to old daylight savings On Mar 28, 2007, at 11:53 AM, Don O'Neil wrote: > So it looks like my zone info files are correct... could the ntp pool > be off for some reason, or does ntpdate need to be updated? > > 28 Mar 10:53:51 ntpdate: ntpdate 4.2.0-a Mon Aug 7 17:44:27 > UTC 2006 > (1) Nope, the NTP protocol uses GMT (or UTC, if you prefer that name) exclusively. However, once you've updated the timezone files, you either need to restart all of the processes which have cached the old TZ file info, or simply reboot. You might find running "ntpdate -b" to reset your clock once before starting ntpd will help correctly sync if your local clock is one hour off (depends on whether your BIOS is trying to keep local time or GMT time)...see "man adjkerntz". -- -Chuck _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
