TBH I don’t have this figured out yet.
# Check the current time date # Check the hardware clock (slower) hwclock # View the Time Status timedatectl # Set the timezone timedatectl set-timezone EST
In my case, the HW clock is wrong (off by 1 hour).
It should be using NTP, but NTP doesn’t seem to take effect. I’ve read a bunch of conflicting information, like using “ntpd -qg” (which can’t be run until you stop the ntp service), or that a command “hwclock –systohc” will do it. One other dude said there’s some sort of check by hwclock that wont do it unless the date is only slightly off (safety feature). I don’t really buy that though.
Ah well, I just wanted a quick note for this.
