I have a server that every once in a while, changes it's time - maybe once a week? I look at it and it's fine for a few days and then at 13:31 the date says it's 7:31. (6 hours...?) I thought there might be some script doing it, but I checked crontab for all the added users and root and there is nothing there.
I have a little script running now to grab 'date' regularly, so I can see when it happens.
I'm in the correct timezone; Denver, not using NTP.
I thought about just activating NTP and pointing at the default clock.redhat.com. If something actively resets the time, will this re-synch it? How long does that take?
