Post by: MPC7500 on January 23, 2021, 05:51:45 am
Hello everyone,

does anyone know how to set / to sync the hwclock?
I'm connected to the internet, but the clock dosen't sync.

Thanks in advance

hwclock --set has not worked. I think my system has just been using Gnome location service to grab the network time each time it boots.

Finally, I synced the time on the BMC (https://docs.graphcore.ai/projects/bmc-user-guide/en/latest/time-management.html).

"Error: Date and time settings could not be saved" when I try to manually set date and time. Setting NTP servers for synchronization works, however.

I just use NTP (I have a stratum 1 server on the local network).
