    question regarding time synchronization

    Locked

    by curacao_dejavu ·

    Hi,

    I have the following issue:

    On my Novell servers I enter the time command it displays the following:

    time synchronization is active
    time is synchronized to the network

    on the main server
    ……….. UTC
    …………MST

    on 2 other server
    …………UTC
    …………AST

    The situation is that the UTC time is equal on all servers, but the MST and AST are not at the same time (4 hour difference)

    What’s MST and AST ? and how can I set them to be at the same time ?
    preferable synchronization on the local network.

    Thanks for all your help

    Leopold

      The servers are set for different time zones. Check the AUTOEXEC.NCF file. Near the top, there will be a line that sets the time zone. Make sure they all match. After changing the AUTOEXEC.NCF, reboot the server.

      If those two servers are actually phisically located at those respective time zones, I wouldn’t change anything, as they synchronize correctly. UTC “Universal” is the “Master” time zone (located around greenwich, london) and if that is the same on both servers, the time is correct. If both servers are located at the same place, then you should apply answer 1, but you should also first try to find out what time zone you are located in.
