I know, possibly stupidquestions, but even on our network, I found a few stragglers last week.The following is pure conjecture. If both servers are reading the same time, but they're using different timezone info, that might be an issue, since UNIX time is always with respect to UTC (same as GMT). That is, the timezone info that you pointed to during your installation (e. g. EST5EDT) simply tweaks the *real* system date/time setting to display to you, the human. However, the system itself is running on UTC. I'm not sure if this is the problem, but that's what I'd check first.It depends, during installation you get to choose whether you want to set your system clock to UTC or not.I think you're referring to the oft-called "CMOS clock" in the BIOS. My understanding of it is the following. The installation doesn't ask you to *set* that BIOS clock to UTC. Rather, it asks you if it's *already* set to UTC or not, so the system knows how to adjust its timezone info in software. That's a bit different. When GNU/Linux boots, it does get its initial time setting from the BIOS clock. But after it starts up, the system doesn't ask the BIOS what time it isanymore. You're now depending totally on the software to set your time.Someone, correct me if I'm wrong here.
I believe you're right. Nils Breunese.
