    Hello All,
    Does anyone know how to adjust the time on a Novell 4.11 server? Our system time needs to be rolled back approx. 10 minutes.

    TIA,
    Bill.

    Go to the command prompt on the server and enter Time followed by the time you want to set.

    I think typing 'time' just gives you the time and the 'time' command doesn't take any variables.

    The command is:

    SET TIMESYNC TIME ADJUSTMENT= XXXX

    where XXXX = +/- HH:MM:SS

    so to rollback 10minutes you would type:

    SET TIMESYNC TIME ADJUSTMENT = -00:10:00

    I would not set the time back on a novell server. This could damage NDS tree..

    No, it will not.

    That is what the Timesync adjustment command is for: to set the time safely for the server and NDS.

    I used to do it all the time, years ago, before you could set the Timeserver to sync with an NTP timesource.
