I am using redhat 9 as page server. My network systems all windows 98 connected with redhat using samba. My problem is the time and date of many network systems is advancing from the normal.  

Like the time will change automatically to 6 hours advance.


Please help

I'm going to guess that the systems that have the problem have been configured with the wrong time zone? Your server's ability to set the time of clients is configured in the /etc/smb.conf file. Can't remember the exact directive, but it is in the global section (at the top of the file). To check that your clock on the Linux box is correct,enter the command:

date

This will give your time zone.

You may need to set your timezone if it is wrong by using the date command:

date --set="Mon Jul  3 21:49:00 BST 2006"

If your date is correct on your server, then the problem is the configuration of the Win 98 systems. In a similar,  fashion, they may be set to the incorrect time.
