Scheduler preset time resets at every reboot

by rodyeo » Sat Dec 09, 2006 8:47 pm

I would enquire if there is an logic bug in RouterOS 2.9.38 "Scheduler" module?

I notice once the scheduler is setup to perform a daily task on a specific time it seems to goes off set and changed to a wrong time and date period of execution the next time the RouterBoard is rebooted.

Could you please analyse if there is a programming bug in this scheduler module.

One more thing I notice my RouterBoard system time and date would reset to Jan 01 1970 at every reboot!

I had to use the NTP Client module to syncronised with the global internet clock every time to stay syncronised.

My question is why can't the RouterBoard retain the system time clock? I guess it might not have a system timer build in with a battery run it's timmer.

Correct me it I am wrong on this findings?

Rodney

FYI.... Can MikroTik Support confirm that the RouterBoard hardware clock timer battery issue could be resolved soon during the next release of the new RouterBoard revision?

Hello,

Yes, you are right about the bug. It should be fixed in the near future.
The only routerboard having battery is routerboard 200. You should use NTP client for any other board to set correct time settings.

Hello,

Problem should not persist on boards, that has battery for keeping correct
time value (including PC and DOM Flash).

NTP client updates routerboard's time about 3 minutes after reboot but
scheduler has already updated it's next run property and does not get new time
settings. As I said in previous mail it is a bug and should be fixed in the
near future.
