I have a small server running centos 6.4 and it is working quite nicely for some time. One thing that still bugs me is that the time in my log files is different then the time the 'date' command displays.
date Thu May 9 13:39:04 BST 2013
And when i login with ssh i get a log entry in secure log:
May 9 08:37:08 xxxx sshd: pam_unix(sshd:session): session opened for user root by
The time difference seem to be always 5 hours. Which makes me think it is something timezone related.
cat /etc/sysconfig/clock ZONE="Europe/London"
ls -al /etc/localtime lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 33 Apr 2 15:13 /etc/localtime -> /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/London
My hwclock output
hwclock Thu 09 May 2013 01:41:40 PM BST -0.938110 seconds
All time settings (i know of) are correct. I restarted the sshd service and cron service, but log files still have the wrong timezone.
It seem to happen on many log files like messages, secure, maillog. Only log files from simple programs like bfd, rkhunter and such have the correct time.
Has anybody got an idea what might be wrong?
