How can I make sure all my servers date/time are in sycn?
To make sure servers are synced up, configure NTP:
Below is an example on How to Configure a NTP Server on Linux Servers.
On this example, I'm connecting to NTP Server in Mexico/North America and changing the Time Zone to CST -6 (Mexico City)
1.- Install NTP
yum install ntp
2.- Edit NTP Config File and point it to the desired NTP Servers
3.- Force NTP to use above servers by running
4.- Change RHEL Time Zone to CST Time as below
timedatectl set-timezone America/Mexico_City
5.- Refresh NTP Date and Time
6.- Confirm Date and Time by running
ntpq -p ; date -R
