Change time on PFSense 2.4.3
Is there a way to change the current date and timer in PFsense 2.4.3? I did change the time zone to GMT+2 but it is still wrong.
Is it syncing with ntp?
Sure you can set the time from console/ssh - use ntpdate
Or to manually force it using the date command
yes i have entered a local NTP server
ntp can take a long time to adjust if way out.. just ssh/console in and set using ntpdate
After changing the time zone, pfSense may need a reboot for all processes to see the new zone.
Also, pfSense runs
-gso when it is first started it can make a large adjustment on its own. No need for
ntpdatewhich is being deprecated.
So a restart of ntpd should do it then.. But jimp makes good point once changing zone couldn't hurt to reboot to make sure all sections pick up the new zone so your consistent across the board.
Yup, and the reboot will also trigger a large NTP adjustment if it's needed.
Hi Everyone. I tried the shell change , rebooted and all is well.
