Opensuse 11.1 date command shows:
# date Wed Dec 23 11:43:27 EST 2009
And I want to change it to current date i.e. July 29 00:50:12 2009. The command I am using to do that is
# date -s "29 July 2009 00:50:12" Wed July 29 00:50:12 EDT 2009
But as I issue date command, it reverts back to the old value with timezone as EST rather than EDT
# date Wed Dec 23 11:45:30 EST 2009
Moreover, I could not synchronize HWClock because its giving me following error
# hwclock --debug hwclock from util-linux-2.12r hwclock: Open of /dev/rtc failed, errno=19: No such device. No usable clock interface found. Cannot access the Hardware Clock via any known method.
The timezone is correctly set in /etc/sysconfig/clock
HWCLOCK="-u" SYSTOHC="yes" TIMEZONE="US/Eastern" DEFAULT_TIMEZONE="US/Eastern"
I don't think there is any NTP server configured as well /etc/ntp.conf
server 127.127.1.0 fudge 127.127.1.0 stratum 10 driftfile /var/lib/ntp/drift/ntp.drift logfile /var/log/ntp server 0.pool.ntp.org server 1.pool.ntp.org server 2.pool.ntp.org
The problem is I've to do everything via shell and also without YaST & YaST2.
I started the rcntp.
# rcntp start Try to get initial date and time via NTP from 0.pool.ntp.org 1.pool.ntdoneg 2.pool.ntp.org Starting network time protocol daemon (NTPD) done # date Wed Dec 23 13:05:24 EST 2009
Also I have used the ntpdate
# ntpdate 0.pool.ntp.org 23 Dec 13:04:01 ntpdate: step time server 184.108.40.206 offset -12744325.660513 sec
But still the issue has not resolved.
