The hardware clock or "Machine time" are the Q system values: QHOUR QMINUTE and QSECOND. Changing those does not affect the software clock. On a side note, I believe changing the QUTCOFFSET (Universal time offset), a manual process that we must do twice a year, will force the SNTP server to end if it's not done at the exact time that daylight savings starts and stops. All this seems like a lot of work. There has to be companies out there running on iSeries (like banks) that are using SNTP to get an exact time stamp for legal purposes. I wish I would hear from them! ON Mon, 13 May 2002, Rich, James wrote: > Hmm... I haven't really played with the clocks on OS/400 much.
