Hi and thanks to all who read and respond.
I have an SCO 5.0.2 system running on an ALR Revolution ST. (300 mhz
The time changes, moves a head rapidly. So fast in fact that the
midnight backup starts at 3:00pm. I have reset the date using date, but
the next day when I login the time is all wrong. In addition, someone
on site has been changing the date with asktime and now if you get both
date and asktime to report the same time then wait and login later the
system reports two different times. The systems has not been shutdown
The hardware mfr says to replace the CMOS battery. Can this be true
that on a powered up system a low battery can cause the clock to keep
Any tips, explanations or leads are appreciated.
