RTC clock on instance is 1 second faster then Local time

Linode Staff

The RTC clock on the instance is 1 second faster then the local time / UTC that is causing our AWS Congito function to fail.

Would it be possible to sync the RTC clock or are there other work arounds?

I did a bit of research for you on this and came up with a couple of resources that should be able to help you out. I'll link them below.

The first deals with NTP, and it goes over how to synchronize your system clock automatically:

How to Synchronize Time with NTP in Linux

This next page shows you how to do this with both NTP and RTC:
