Default Time settings

This has little to do with ISPConfig but I know there are a lot of smart people around here.

I have 2 ISPConfig server both running Debian etch setup with the perfect setup. One of them sets the time always one hour ahead.

Timezone, systemtime, hardwareclock, .... No matter what I try, after some time he's always one hour ahead.

The correct server:
ho:~# date
zo mrt 30 14:21:37 CEST 2008
ho:~# hwclock --show
zo 30 mrt 2008 14:21:54 CEST -0.158876 seconds


The wrong server:
lcl:~# date
zo mrt 30 15:18:03 CEST 2008
lcl:~# hwclock --show
zo 30 mrt 2008 14:22:04 CEST -0.223452 seconds

How can I fix this?

Do you sync the time on the servers with ntp?

I'm using ntp but whenever I check its status;

# /etc/init.d/ntp status
NTP server is not running.

I can't find a reason for this behavior.

However, even when ntp is running, somehow the system time is always ahead.

Run
Code:
tzconfig
and select the correct time zone (do this even if it already shows the correct time zone), then reboot the system.

Thumbs up

I already tried this but this didn't change anything.

I could fix it by using this setting in my VMware settings:
tools.syncTime = "False"

Now ntpd is doing the job just fine.
