Novell 5.1 Server Clock losing time
Posted on 2004-10-11
I have 1 Novell 5.1 server that is not connected to the Internet that a few workstations get their time from. As there is no connectivity to the outside, the time that the workstations are syncing to is the servers internal clock. The problem is this clock gets increasing out of time (on the slow side). This is a brand new server with an ASUS motherboard - it sounds like a CMOS battery problem, but feel that might be unlikely as it is only months old. Thought I'd check in and make sure there's no chance it's a Novell 5.1 software issue before scheduling the downtime.
