Hey, I'm running a dev server in VMWare (On a WindowsXP host) just to screw around with some things. Running FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE. VMWare causes the clock in FreeBSD to be a inaccurate; it loses about 2 hours every 24 hours.
I read the handbook entry on the NTP daemon which automatically syncs the clock. Previously I was using cron to run ntpdate every 2 hours. I set NTPd to update using NTP.org's pool servers. Yet it isn't syncing. I setup NTPd last night. I checked about 20 minutes ago and the time was off by 2 hours. I shutdown ntpd and ran ntpdate manually, and it updated just fine. My logs have only this: /var/log/messages:May 30 23:04:19 Jupiter ntpd: ntpd 4.2.0-a Mon May 28 23:49:40 EDT 2007 (1) /var/log/messages:May 30 23:04:19 Jupiter ntpd: no IPv6 interfaces found /var/log/messages:May 31 16:41:50 Jupiter ntpd: ntpd exiting on signal 15 The first two came up as soon as I started NTPd. The third one was when I stopped it. I rebuild world without IPv6 support. I tried adding the -4 flag to ntpd_flags in /etc/rc.conf as it says in the man page, but NTPd reports that -4 doesn't exist. While NTPd is running, I ran "ntpq -np" to display the peers. It did output the four servers from pool.ntp.org, so it's connecting fine. My /etc/rc.conf contains: ntpd_enable="YES" ntpd_sync_on_start="YES" ntpd_flags="-p /var/run/ntpd.pid -f /var/db/ntpd.drift -g" Anyone know how I can fix this? Or should I just go back to running ntpdate with cron? _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
