It needs down time. Because your server having DB. Please get a down time after that you have to change the time and sync with your ntpd server for your time chaging.

Younusdba,

what exactly do you mean with change the servertime ?

Change the time of the cronjob, change the timezone of the server or really change the time of the server by x minutes?
