    Time/Date issue on RedHat 7.3 box

    Hello everyone:

    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[23506]: step time server offset 519.889202 sec

    *** WAIT ONE MINUTE : Used my Timex ***

    22 Nov 14:17:21 ntpdate[23538]: step time server offset 34.675363 sec
