xntp, ntpdate, setting the local clock
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
I'm using xntpd (for no good reason), have setup my ntp servers in
/etc/ntp.conf, have ran ntpq to find that xntpd is working great.
However, the local clock isn't being set, according to reftime in ntpq
| rv. I'm unsure if the offset being roughly 2881775 is a problem, but
I know that's a lot (probably about 8*60*60*10, since I'm at GMT+8,
I'm also not sure what to do about the timezone issue. My
/etc/init.d/boot is set to UTC ( GMT="-u" ), and I have a TZ assignment
in my .bashrc which corrects the clock in X-windows ( TZ="UTC" ; export
TZ ). /sbin/clock -r gives the correct time, so I think that all I
need to do is to learn how to set the local clock, so I can automate
I see a note: "ntpdate will decline to set the date if an NTP server
daemon (e.g., xntpd) is running on the same host."
(/usr/doc/xntp3/html/ntpdate.html) That could be a problem.. :-)
Should I be using ntpd (vs. xntpd), or .. ??
