So i’ve setup NTP on my linux CentOS server but my server time is still off by 1 hour. Currently it is
3:53am EST however, on my linux machine it shows “2:53 AM EST” this is with NTP and using
ntpdate time.nist.gov and couple other servers trying to sync my server’s time but all of this still have my server 1 hour behind the EST time.
Anyone know how to possibly fix this?
Make sure that you have an up to date
tzdata package. If you rely on correct time display, then this is a critical package you should keep up to date, as it holds all of the worldwide rules for daylight saving time.
Make sure you set the desired timezone in
/etc/sysconfig/clock in addition to setting up
Make sure you aren’t accidentally using the
US/East-Indiana zone, which does not observe daylight saving time.
