Expertise level: Easy

Synchronizing the clock on your Smart Server with the system's clock will provide accurate data and ensure trouble-free server administration. Follow these steps:


In the XenVM console, type the command:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/xen/independent_wallclock
To set the date, use this format for the date command:  <MMDDhhmm>. For example, the following command would set the date to 21:21:00 3 May 2007:
date 05032121

 If you want this setting to persist through a reboot of the virtual machine, change the sysctl configuration file /etc/sysctl.conf by adding the following lines:

Independent wall clock time to XenServer Host

xen/independent_wallclock = 1
