Chapter 8. Customizing User and System Settings > Setting System Time and Date

Setting System Time and Date

Various aspects of the date and time are specified in the Date & Time pane of System Preferences.

Date & Time

In the Date & Time section of the Date & Time pane, you actually set the date and time. If your computer gets time from a network time server, you don't need to set the time, but you do need to set the server. Select one of Apple's network time servers or provide an address for another one. You can also access the International pane from here to set date and time formats. Figure 8.26 shows the Date & Time section. Note that if you receive your time setting from a network time server, you might have trouble when your machine boots up if it can't find the network time server.
