Description ian 1999-09-03 17:14:46 EDT
System clock is set using bios.

When system is booted using smp kernel in Redhat 6, clock is
incorrectly read and set to wrong time.

Hardware Abit bp6 board.  Not using 66 disks, ata video,
Comment 1 Doug Ledford 2000-04-22 02:19:59 EDT
This sounds like the system is configured to expect the system clock to be saved
in GMT time instead of local time and upon bootup the system date is being set
to the time in the BIOS +- the offset of your local time zone.  You can check
this by looking into the file /etc/sysconfig/clock and see if UTC is set to
false or true.  If true, then the system does indeed expect the system BIOS
clock to be set according the GMT, not local time.
