Hi,

 

the date jumps within 30 seconds to a wrong value. ntp service is
stopped at the beginning.

 

Whereas hwclock seems more precise. 

 

[root at kerio ~]# service ntpd stop

Shutting down ntpd:                                        [  OK  ]

[root at kerio ~]# ntpdate 0.centos.pool.ntp.org

13 Mar 07:04:48 ntpdate[23003]: step time server 131.234.137.24 offset
-3450.678273 sec

[root at kerio ~]# hwclock

Fri 13 Mar 2009 07:04:59 AM GMT  -0.014767 seconds

[root at kerio ~]#

 

/etc/ntp.conf is in original configuration.

 

Remarks:

- most of our servers run without X-Windows, this uses X-Windows and
Gnome.

- the server runs kerio mail services. Even the original from kerio
configured VMWare server has had this behavior.

- stopping of keriomailserver does not help

 

 

 

Helmut
