I meet below problem on SUSE11 sp1 64bit with ntp4.2.4p6:
1. Set os date and bios date 7 minutes earlier than current date time;
and wait ntpd to sync from remote ntp server to fix the time , after
some minutes, both OS time and bios time fixed.
2. but when I try to test 30 minutes instead of 7minutes, only os time
synced with upper level ntp server, the bios time still 30 minutes
earlier than os time. hwclock can sync time to bios.
Is there any option to control the "sync to bios" action?
Or I need to set a cron job to run hwclock ?
