Hi Guys,

I’m having a problem with the time on a 2960 switch always defaulting back to Mon March 1 1993. I have been using “clock set hh:mm:ss 9 November 2010”  which changes the date/time however as soon as I do a reboot of the switch is reverts back (of course I “wr mem” after making the change to the clock)

The timezone was set and is perfectly fine

Just to be sure, you're doing the following right?

Router# clock set 10:48:05 November 9 2010
Router# show clock detail
Router# wr mem

You may need to set an ntp peer

(config)# ntp peer 216.152.68.20

thats tock.gpsclock.com

you could go with tick/tock from usno.navy.mil

To check it, do a "show ntp status" and see what it says.
