Command for finding OS time.


I want to check the current time of Redhat time in order to check whether my OS clock is in sync with the server.

I didn't know that command until I saw your post. The output is really funny.

OS time clock synchcronization with win2003 server clock.


Thanks for the reply. but my problem is, i have a wins2003 server on which atomic clock running. i have to login in to redhat machine and then issue a command which checks that my redhat machine sys clock is in sync with the atomic clock on win2003 server.i can do this from another win2003 server machine by following command: net time \\ip-address of atomic clock machine.

this command checks the sync condition and returns it.

is there any such command in redhat by which i can perform the above functions.

thanks and waiting for reply
