The only thing that always remain the same are the changes.

Re: Errors in syslog.log

It appears you have an issue with how you do the time synchronixation. Could be on the external time source side.

Hi Marty,

Definitely coming from the NTP daemon.
Check your /etc/ntp.conf for any obvious errors.
If you have multiple servers listed make sure one has a prefer statement.
You may also wish to enable statistics on NTP by adding

statsdir /var/adm/ntp
statistics loopstats
statistics peerstats
enable auth monitor

Don't forget to create /var/adm/ntp

Rgds,
Jeff

Re: Errors in syslog.log

xntpd is an operating system daemon which sets and maintains the system time-of-day in synchronism with Internet standard time servers

The message indicates that there are no more recv buffers available at the moment. This can occur if your system is a broadcast client and many packets arrive in a short period of time. The HIGH and LOW water marks are not configurable.

OK
I'm not sincing the time.
Im just getting it to see how the clock is holding up.
I will just turn that off and look in to that later.
Thanks for yout help.
