Administrators configure the server’s current date and time, and specify the server's time zone and NTP server for synchronization.

Note: Proper server operation requires time synchronization with a reliable time source. For example, Kerberos authentication (required when operating with Active Directory) depends on the current time. Clock ’drift’ may also cause inaccurate reporting of file access and modification times, with unexpected results in data migrations. NTP provides the best and most reliable method for maintaining the server’s time accuracy.
