    How to set hardware clock to utc?


    Have a question about setting to hardware clock to utc. I have read a number of pages on the NET and am unsure about this. Do I set this in the bios? I can't see anything in the bios to allow this option. I set the hardware clock from the system with
    Code:
    hwclock --systohc
    Will this work?

    Thanks for advice

    I use the BIOS options to set my own hardware clock, and I run the NTP daemon to keep the system time properly updated.

    You can check the following wiki page for some info on getting your hardware clock and system clock working properly:
