So, my server is living in the future, unfortunately I can't get lottery numbers, or stock picks out of it.
It thinks this is the time:
Thu Nov 7 04:07:18 EST 2013
Not correct, I tried to set the time manually via date in a few ways
# date -s "06 NOV 2013 14:48:00"
# date 110614482013 -- same output, same problem
Wed Nov 6 14:48:00 EST 2013, but when I check the date again, it's still set to Nov 7th 0400 or whatever.
I checked my system messages, and I see this pop up often:
Nov 7 03:54:00 www ntpd: time correction of -47927 seconds exceeds sanity limit (1000); set clock manually to the correct UTC time.
Which makes sense, we're way off the correct time. But I can't seem to manually fix it. So now what?
Also, I'm wondering if my hardware clock is setup correct,
hwclock doesn't return any values. Would that be causing issues?
This is a virtualized server, I don't have direct access to the hypervisor, but I can talk to who does, assume I can explain myself well enough.
