Re: Time change when power off

HP-9000 clocks are noteworthy for not being accurate.

You probably have a dead or weak clock battery.

Best course of action is to set up ntp.conf and point to a local or Internet time source, then the time will always be right.

Re: Time change when power off

Hi Rene,

Could you check your firmware revision,

Patch Name: PF_CKEYMAT0601

Patch Description: HP rp7405/rp7410/rp8400/Server Expansion Unit Firmware 6.1

http://www5.itrc.hp.com/service/cki/patchDocDisplay.do?patchId=PF_CKEYMAT0601

When reading the Real-Time-Clock, the values returned occasionally may be incorrect. A new method is used to read the RTC to correct the erroneous returns.

Regards,
Robert-Jan
