    Server time incorrect after server reboot

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Problem Symptoms:
    The server time is incorrect. Even after rebooting the server it is still incorrect.

    The /etc/localtime which should be a symbolic link to ____ was not a symbolic link but, instead, had the wrong local time coded in it.

    Temporary solution (not requiring reboot of server): use ntpdate command to correct. See Additional Information below for example.

    Permanent solution:
    * If this is an Ex Libris Hosted server, have Cloud Production change /etc/localtime to the proper symbolic link.
    * If a non-hosted, local server, ask the systems staff to do the same.
