Time/Date issue on RedHat 7.3 box
Recently I've been having a problem with the time/ date on a RedHat 7.3 box which runs 20+ webservers. It seems every day that I come in to work the box is 12-15 hours behind. Today I've noticed that if I run ntpdate and set the time and then run it one minute later that it's 30-40 seconds off each and every time... Any one have any idea why this might be happening? It's critical that I fix this becuase I've got cron jobs that SHOULD be firing off every morning and sending customer reports. This isn't happening on time.
Example of ntpdate output
22 Nov 14:16:17 ntpdate: step time server 188.8.131.52 offset 519.889202 sec
*** WAIT ONE MINUTE : Used my Timex ***
22 Nov 14:17:21 ntpdate: step time server 184.108.40.206 offset 34.675363 sec
