System time incorrect, off by an hour

  • Platform information:
    *Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Rev 1.1
    • openhabian 1.6.5
    • openHAB version: 3.1.0

I can’t get my system time correct, it’s an hour into the future, I set my timezone via:
openhabian-config > system settings > set system timezone.
If I type timedatectl status into the console I get:

Local time: Mon 2021-08-16 16:44:14 CDT
           Universal time: Mon 2021-08-16 21:44:14 UTC
                 RTC time: n/a
                Time zone: US/Central (CDT, -0500)
System clock synchronized: yes
              NTP service: active
          RTC in local TZ: no

I it’s supposed to be (cdt, -0600), maybe it’s an issue with daylight savings time, though I don’t see any settings for DST.

This might help

CDT is by definition a DST zone. CDT -5, CST -6, CT variable.

OK, so I don’t have to worry about DST then?
But how can I correct the time?
The link you posted shows an hour ahead as well, and highlights the correct area. I think I’m even more confused now.

edit: OMG this is embarrassing, the computer I’m using has time incorrect, OH box was correct all along
