Date and time always wrong


I run RH9 and recently installed MDK 9.2 since then if I set the date and time correctly in one it throws the other one off. Why is that?

One of your systems is probably set to UTC and the other to local time.

Could you display what you did to fix this? I too am having this problem, well sort of. When I type 'date' it displays:

"Wed Dec 10 22:30:17 PST 2003" which is correct. However, I set a cron job to perform a task at 11:30 pm and it started doing it right now.
