Re: MST7MDT timezone broken?
Same problem here. Both of my servers and my workstation had to be manually
I ssh'd into the boxen to run set the time; I ended up setting the clocks
manually, (date blah), which confused the timestamping on the mail server. After
setting the clocks back an hour, I reran tzconfig. I've gotta admit, it was
a little embarassing to see the novell box and 30 odd win9* stations handle this
I suppose I should've run tzconfig first; I was inna hurry. Even so, it
should've occurred automagically.
