Unable to set time, get error "can't reach time daemon, time set locally"
I've tried using just the webgui to execute the date command, and also using SSH under root and get the same message.
in SSH, it says setting local time… however, the system time does not change.
time zone is configured correctly... NTP would "appear" to be right; however, the time is consistantly 15 minutes off.... :(
well.. it appears that since this is running in a VM, the system time is forced down from Hyper-V some how… the host had the wrong time settings (and was not configured to use an NTP server)... so ya, that was my bad.
what time zone are you in? What does your ntp status show for who your syncing with, and what is the offset, etc. Can you post up screenshot of your ntp status.
from ssh you can do a ntpq pe or and rv and get info can you post yours.
For example here is mine

In hyper-v integration services, if "time synchronization" is enabled for the VM, I guess you get the error noted in my post.
after disabling it, i was able to change the time without an issue.
ah great.. have you checked after that post that your able to talk to a1.pcloud.com ? Your reach on all ntp servers you have set should be 377 after been running for a while. If it never goes to that or can not maintain 377 then you have a problem talking to the ntp server, or it has issues and should pick a different one, etc.
So if you were setting time from your host, and it was off you prob want to look to how your host is setting its own time.
the host was not setup to use anything.. which is a problem, but also I have no clue where it's getting the a1.pcloud.com. Does pfsense use it's own NTP settings?
actually, in this situation i have to laugh at myself cause it was obviously getting the time for the VM from the host machine… well, that is when it was configured to sync it.
