Try calling SCO tech support.

Trying to get help from a linux community for an SCO problem is like asking the devil to go to church.

Gregaryh - that was unhelpful, hanava has a problem which may apply to other systems.

Hanava - I would guess that your main server needs to be set up with the ntp protocol - both to receive and to distribute the time. Your other boxes would need to have their conf files pointed at the main server (you may also need to add in the port number).

Unfortunately, I don't have any personal experience with this so can't help further.
