A Niagara R2 UNC will not keep time accurately. On startup, the standard output window indicates an error loading the timezones.txt file.

Issue

A Niagara R2 UNC will not keep time accurately.  The time doesn't just drift a few seconds.  It is jumping around by hours.  Trying to change the time in the Admin Tool does not work.  The following error appears in the standard output window on startup of the UNC:  ERROR: Cannot load /tffs/rel//nre/lib/timezones.txt

---------- Station Starting:   THU FEB 28 14:41:44 2013 ----------
