Someone asked me to update the times on 4 servers that are not connected to the internet and they have no ntp server.
/etc/hosts 22.214.171.124 jollibee 126.96.36.199 mcdonalds 188.8.131.52 burgerking 184.108.40.206 chowking
The easiest thing for me to do would be to run
date -s "25 Jul 2012 14:40:00"
for each of the 4 servers.
I know they will want me to do this again in the future and I find it a pain to set the time manually. What i want to do is set the time on one box and then set the times on the other boxes off this box.
e.g. if i set jollibee's time to the correct date i would then run
[root@mcdonalds /]# date -s `ssh jollibee 'date +"%d %b %Y %T"'`
and so on for my other servers
Thing is I'm getting:
date: too many non-option arguments: 2012 ... Try `date --help' for more information.
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong here?
