What mean "old date" ? It fixed value or some delta from correct value ?
One possible reason: you syncronize with bad time server ( or uncorrect configured TimeZone).
Check for running daemon ntp or scheduled ntpdate rdate via cron ( crontab -l )
It's a Sun Fire T2000 server
and the date is changed suddenly without any intervention which causes so many problems in the applications working on it
I don't know but I'm thinking of the battery which stores the hardware clock watch on the board
am I thinking correctly ?
because it's very weird
I tried the NTP configuration but still I'm looking for the root cause :)
Thanks for your answer and help :)
yes this sounds like a battery issue. Have you checked the ALOM? The battery in our T2000 ran out about 1-2 years ago so if you have never changed yours, this sounds like the right time.
