Problem with start end time in backup.log

remush
Hi all,

I"ve spotted another problem.

Please have a look at his copy of two backup logs
--------------[ Session statistics ]--------------
StartTime 1423113981.00 (Thu Feb  5 15:26:21 2015)
EndTime 1423113924.01 (Thu Feb  5 15:25:24 2015)
ElapsedTime -56.99 (59 minutes 3.01 seconds)
SourceFiles 1000
SourceFileSize 1383559174 (1.29 GB)
MirrorFiles 1000
MirrorFileSize 1383559174 (1.29 GB)
NewFiles 0
NewFileSize 0 (0 bytes)
DeletedFiles 0
DeletedFileSize 0 (0 bytes)
ChangedFiles 0
ChangedSourceSize 0 (0 bytes)
ChangedMirrorSize 0 (0 bytes)
IncrementFiles 0
IncrementFileSize 0 (0 bytes)
TotalDestinationSizeChange 0 (0 bytes)
Errors 0
--------------------------------------------------
Check out the StartTime and EndTime, the systems things it finished before it started...
Any ideas why this is happening ?
Thanks,
Remus.

Without more information, no.

So how is the backup being done:

Between directories on a single machine?
Between machines on the same LAN?
Across the Internet?
What are the time zones set to on the machines?
What is the command string used?

Seems this is not unknown, but looks like unfixed:

Well if you point the Windows time servers at NTP and install an ntp
client on the Linux machine, you should be good to go.
