Your socket is in use since your ntp deamon wants to synchronise first,
using the sockets you can use.

Wait a bit and the drift file will also be filled i'd guess.

Cheers

Chris,

I am trying to use the same setup as you have to get ntpd working.

touch /var/db/ntpd.drift

In my rc.conf file I have to use the following
xntpd_enable="YES"
xntpd_program="/usr/sbin/ntpd"
xntpd_flags="-c /etc/ntp.conf"
xntpd_flags="-p /var/run/ntpd.pid -f /var/db/ntpd.drift"


These didn't work for some reason.
ntpd_enable="YES"
ntpd_program="/usr/sbin/ntpd"
ntpd_flags="-c /etc/ntp.conf"
ntpd_flags="-p /var/run/ntpd.pid -f /var/db/ntpd.drift"

I am able to get the server started but, I still get the two error
messages in my log file.
kernel time discipline status 2040
Un-parsable frequency in /var/db/ntpd.drift


Is this because I have to let the server sit for a couple of hours to
sync with.
server time.nist.gov
server timekeeper.isi.edu


When I type:
ntpdate -u time.nist.gov  #my system clock is updated

When I type:
ntpdate time.nist.gov
25 Feb 14:22:32 ntpdate[254]: the NTP socket is in use, exiting


Any thoughts,

brian

My /etc/rc.conf looks like this - Compare it to yours.

ntpd_enable="YES"
ntpd_program="/usr/sbin/ntpd"
ntpd_flags="-c /etc/ntp.conf"
ntpd_flags="-p /var/run/ntpd.pid -f /var/db/ntpd.drift"


Perhaps touch ntpd.drift in /var/db/ ?
