synthetic time

By randyh ·
I have a file server, netware 4.2 which jumped ahead to the year 2075. Upon setting the year back to 2000, the server keeps on reporting it is on I believe synthetic time, or not syncronized time. How do I adjust so the reporting will go away. Thanks in advance.

Is this the only server you have in the tree ? If so all you need to do is down your server and set the DOS Hardware Clock to read the current time (set time and set date) then bring your server back up. Type in: LOAD DSREPAIR -A This will put you into advance mode for dsrepair. Click on "advance options menu" mode then click on "Replicas and partition operations" Highlight the partition that is reporting synthetic time and press enter (look on the console and it will tell you what partition or partitions are having the problem) Choose "Repair time stamps and declare a new epoch" (if you do not see this option you did not use the -a switch when loading DSREPAIR) It will ask you to login as Admin. This will reset all the objects that have the furture time stamp causes the synithetic time. If you have more then one server with many partitions you will do the same thing except make sure you are communicating with each server before you do the reset of the time epoch. If at all possible, it is best to red

It cut off part of my answer,,,, here is the rest of it : If at all possible, it is best to reduce the replica ring to a minimum amount of servers before you reset. Then you can put the replicas back on after the reset is done. You should do this off shift becuase it will cause a lot of traffic. depending on how you network is set up it could take so time to finish.
Good luck this will fix it for you.
