I have a 12 hour difference in my system time and hwclock time. I have manually set the system time to the proper local time, then when I ran hwclock --systohc it moved my hwclock to 12hr slow:
[root@centos ~]# date 081718062013
Sat Aug 17 18:06:00 EDT 2013
[root@centos ~]# hwclock --systohc
[root@centos ~]# date
Sat Aug 17 18:06:50 EDT 2013
[root@centos ~]# hwclock -r
Sat 17 Aug 2013 06:06:56 PM EDT -0.910680 seconds
--systohc set the hardware clock to the current system time
so according to the hwclock -h the --systohc should have moved the hardware clock to 18hr, not 06hrs. what gives, and how to i fix this?
I need to get my time stamp working properly on the server so that I can start playing around with Kerberos.
edit to add, yes i am EDT so the time zone is correct.
No i am not running NTP atm. I might move to that soon if I can not figure out how to fix the hardware clock.
