Both the win2K workstattion and the Linux computer time zone
are set as Central Time USA, and both are set for enable "daylight saving times"
I used the time offset = 780 in smb.conf and when I created a new file/folder in Samba, the time matched that of the Linux computer. 780 is 780 minutes.
780 / 60 = 13 hours
I have to offset Samba by 13 hours so that the Samba time would be the same as that in Linux. The fact is the Samba time is only 11 hours earlier than Linux. Any ideas why I have to offset it by 13 hours to get it to offset by 11 hours ?
