How to set real time clock
« on: November 11, 2021, 09:31:27 pm »
My Talos II thinks it's six days ago, which is causing trouble for https. How can I reset the hardware date and time?

Update: Figured it out, you have to set it using the BMC, and make sure either it's UTC or your OS can handle localtime.

And... just as well I figured it out, because I think my board shipped with a dead RTC battery :P
