Ixora board external RTC issue

Hi,

I wanted to use the external RTC on ixora board. I put the battery and set the time but when I restart the module time is not updated.

I use date -s "date and time" to set the time. Your suggestion was using timedatectl but I can not set with that since it is saying that time synchronization is enabled.

Do you have any idea what can be the issue for?

Thanks.

See if this helps https://www.toradex.com/community/questions/1202/am-using-iris-rev-11-board-with-colibri-vf61-i-hav.html

Hi,

These steps are for WinCE. My module come with linux.

I tried to set the time by date -s and then hwclock -w .
But when I reset the module the time will be changed.

Thanks.

Hi

You probably need to switch off the network time synchronization or the synchronization will interfere with your settings.
e.g.
timedatectl set-ntp 0

then set the time and reboot
timedatectl set-time 22:50:11
reboot
